the default alignment of elements is 'left', so all you'd have to do is to remove the margins.  this can be done in several ways.

for IE:

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

for Netscape:

<body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

using CSS:

<body style="margin-left:0;margin-top:0">

the CSS solution only worked ok in IE4, IE5 and Opera as far as I could see.

You can write
<body leftmargin=0 topmargin=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0>
It will work in IExplorer and Netscape :)

yes, of course.  I forgot to say that you can add all three (or the two first ones) together to support both.

all depends on how you like to do it. :)

and if that doesn't work then try:

<table align=left>
