In IE you can use a 'command' inside the body-tag that makes it possible for the html-author to decide the distance from the html-code and the margins. It could look something like this:

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="5">

However, I havent been able to get this to work with Netscape Communicator. I know that it can be done because I have seen other pages that has gotten this effect when viewed in Netscape but looking in the source-code havent helped me so far.

My question is as follows: How can I make this work in both Netscape and IE?

Hi Jbirk,

that command was exactly the one I was looking for and it seems to work fine in Netscape Communicator 4.x. and in IE. Its one thing though, do you know what versions of Netscape and/or IE that supports these commands? It work with version 4.x (both browsers) but do you know about the older versions? I will give you your points even if you cant answer this as soon as you have commented this comment.

Well, netscape 3 does NOT support this command.  I cannot run IE 3 since I have IE 4 installed so I do not know if it will support that command or not.  My educated guess is no, it will not support that, but it's only a guess.

Glad I could help!
