I need to be able to set the page margins and header on an HTML page. I haven't done much HTML for a while, but I think I remember that there were a couple of tags to do this, albeit maybe only in IE4. Please don't tell me to use tables and set the borders that way, I'm convinced there are tags to do what I want. Many thanks in advance.

in the body tag do something like this and as far as I know it does only work in IE, don't know which version started supporting it but I dont't think it works in NN or NC.

<BODY TOPMARGIN=0 LEFTMARGIN=0>

obviously replacing the 0 with the number of pixels you choose to have as a margin.

Many thanks TAMC. I haven't tried it yet, but those tags do indeed ring bells, so I'll take your word for it and try it later.
