form putting space around images

Hi! My page is split up into frames. In the left frame I have an index containing several buttons for navigation.  Each of these buttons needs to be a form because each one will be passing hidden fields.  My problem is that putting each button in a form puts such a space around each image, that it is causing the user to have to scroll down to view all the buttons. Well,I need the buttons all on the page with NO scrolling. I want to know if there is any way to minimize this space created by the forms.  When I get rid of the <form></form> around each button the space goes away.  Any ideas????? Thanks, Kirsten

You really shouldn't put each button in a form, it's rarely necessary. There should be ONE form, not many. And I really question the need for a form at all, if it's navigation.

Could you post a link to the page? You might get more help than you bargained for... ;-)

Though technically invalid html, an often used trick if you are using tables for your layout is to place the form tags between, say, the table and tr tags.

for example:

<table>
  <form>
    <tr><td><input type="image" src="..."></td></tr>
  </form>
  <form>
    <tr><td><input type="image" src="..."></td></tr>
  </form>
</table>

instead of

<table>
  <tr>
    <form>
      <td><input type="image" src="..."></td>
    </form>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <form>
      <td><input type="image" src="..."></td>
    </form>
  </tr>
</table>

why don't you just make the buttons into normal links, and put the hidden fields into the querystring?
