By default, <TABLES> are left-justified
and top-justified, in both browsers.
What "differences" are you seeing,
and what "problems" does this create?

Perhaps, you need to use Adobe PDFs
(Portable Document Files), if "layout"
is that critical to your need?

In Netscape the background is set to start at position 0,0.
Graphics and Tables etc however all have this horrid offset.
From experience this is about 10,10. - pushing your element to the right and down.

If this is the case you can use the STYLE attribute of the TABLE to shift the pic/table to 0,0.

Try.

STYLE="margin-left:-10; margin-top:-10;

Note that I have tried to find a solution that will cover both IE & NS but without joy. Therefore you will have to have a browser detector script to send the user to the correct page - one with negative margins and one with zero margins

It worked for me !
