if I have an image in a table tag like so:

<table border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
  <tr>
    <td><img src="myimage.gif">
    </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><img src="myimage.gif">
    </tD>
  </tr>
</table>

there is always about a 2 pixel space between the first image and the 2nd image ... is there a way I can get those images to completely connect like if i did this:

<img src="myimage.gif"><br>
<img src="myimage.gif">

i've looked in style tags and things like that and can't figure out anything .. any help?

thanks,

Take out the space before/after the td tags. Make sure you set border=0 on the images. Set the size of the images and the size of the table. The size of the table should equal the total of the image widths.

Just taking out extra spaces and making sure border on images is 0 should do it, though. And make sure that there's not any border on the actual graphic.

in other words...





<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td><img src="myimage.gif" border="0"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><img src="myimage.gif" border="0"></td>
  </tr>
</table>

Like the other guys have said, the carriage return before the </td> is what is giving you the space.  I ran into this when I first started with tables and it drove me NUTS until I figured it out.

You are still likely to get a one pixel gap in Netscape. One of its many one pixel bugs.

You shouldn't. If you did, none of the slicing tools from the graphics programs would work. They work just fine, with no gaps in either IE or Netscape.

FRAMES can give you gaps. Not tables. Not if they're set up right.

WW is right.  But then she already knows she is.  If you leave no space between your table data and the closing </td>, you will get NO pixel gap.  I've made tables that would definitely not turn out right if there was 1 pixel gap at the end of each cell and they worked fine in netscrap.

Well, next time you'll know! We all fight with tables. I've probably made every mistake you can with them at least a dozen times. And that's just today. ;-)

Thanks for the A!
