I'm trying to make my image flush to the top-left of the screen with no white space around it.  It looks great in Frontpage but when previewed in a browser I get a thin white space on the top of the image and going down the left side.  I tried putting it in a table and turning the cell-padding to zero but that did not seem to work.

Have you tried putting the image at the top of your page and adding:

<body topmargin=0 leftmargin=0>

You may also need some other variation to deal with NS, but this might work for IE.

Tom's suggestion will solve the problem in msie, but netscape does not support 0 margins :(  I very badly wish that it did.  You could also use absolute positioning, but only newer versions of netscape will support it, and not very well from a stability point of view I might add.

<span style="position: absolute; left: 0; top: 0"><img border="0" src="images/myimage.gif" width="100" height="50"></span>

It's worth a shot.

I did have my topmargin and leftmargin set to zero and it does work in IE but not Netscape

I think your problem has to do with "Browser Offset".

  Put this in you body tag:
<BODY topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">

   This should work in any browser that happens by your site.

  This has already been answered in this thread, but in code, like above.

If you admit that these answers have already been given by others, then why resubmit them as yours for points?
  So I don't receive the points is why. The reason I even answered is it wasn't in code form, and thought the person asking the question might not understand the other folks that answered, but didn't spell it out in coding for both IE and NN.
