Set the minimum height of an element.

      min-height: length | percentage | none | inherit ;

Length - The min height in px, pt or em.
percentage - The min height as a percentage value.
none - No limit on the height. (default)
inherit - inherit from the parent element.
min-content - The intrinsic minimum width. Experimental/CSS 3.
   (Firefox moz-min-content and Chrome webkit-min-content).
max-content - The intrinsic preferred width. Experimental/CSS 3.
   (Firefox moz-max-content and Chrome webkit-max-content).
fill-available - The containing block height minus horizontal margin, border and padding. Experimental /CSS 3
available - An ancient name for fill-available (some browsers only)

Min-height does not include padding, borders, or margins, these can cause the total height to be larger.
If a div contains more text than will fit within a limited height, then it will scroll below the bottom border.

h1 { min-height: 25px; }
.ss64class { min-height: 2em; }

#SS64id { min-height: 25pt; }
