I want a table to go across the top of the browser window, to take up the entire thing.

I already have
<BODY topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">
 and
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
(the table has a background image that I want to extend to the sides of the browser.)
The trouble is, 100% doesn't do the trick, it needs to be 101 or 102, but  then there's a risk of  horizontal scrollbar- at 100, it there's a largeish visible gap at the right side

If I can't get this, I might use a background image for the whole page, but that's a last resort

Well, the idea is they want it stretched fully accross with no gaps, but they don't control how wide the screen is.

the best you will get it to fit is set margins at 0 make the table with no border, then strech either 100% or how ever many pixels

Ehh, javascript might get a little futzy. I think we might experiment with the background image idea, or just live with it. Thanks.
