Table not showing correctly.

I made this table that is supposed to have the background as an outline for a regular sized ad.  The outline is 494 x 86 which means, if you do the math, that the border is 13 pixels wide on every side.  I set the border property to 0 and the cellpadding property to 13.  When you view the image, the left and right borders are correct but the top seems to be a little expaned.  IE seems to think that the top border in my picture is 8 pixels high.  What's wrong?

Here's my code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY background="chip.gif">
<TABLE BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=13 CELLSPACING=0>
<TR>
<TD><IMG SRC="logo.gif" HEIGHT=68 WIDTH=68></TD>
<TD BACKGROUND="adborder.gif" HEIGHT=86 WIDTH=494><IMG SRC="fakead.gif" BORDER=0 WIDTH=468 HEIGHT=60></TD></TR>
</TABLE>
</BODY>
</HTML>

I really can't find out what's wrong.

Your answer/comment worked for me.  All I had to do to get the ad in the right place was to change to change your valign and align to top and left.  Now, my only problem is getting some of the picture that hangs out the bottom to dissappear.  I think I can fix that though.  ;-)
