I believe that the technical "prescriptive" grammar would be "taller than I". However, where I live, nobody says that. I'm quite a grammar nerd, and I would still say "taller than me". Languages change, and I believe this change in English is just about complete.

"prescriptive" grammar is pretty much latin grammar superimposed on english...'than me' has been around in the english language before shakespeare was even born AFAIK...

skip down to "Than I versus Than Me."

@saeb: Yes, exactly. When people say use than with the subjective case, it generally just sounds elitist. I always laugh when people use this rule incorrectly though, e.g. "They talked to her more than I" when they clearly mean "than me".

Quia grammatica Latina revera optima est, ea in lingua Anglica bona quoque est. ;)))))
