Pls am having a problem with the demo site http://www.geocities.com/webymonkee/  i created using Dmweaver4, there's this white that happears at the far right handside of the page which  seems there's nothing to cover it, i thought i had draw my layout table to the right very well in order to avoid this white thing showing, yet it still does, i've set my page propoerties margings, all to 0s, yet the white edge still happears.
I used the concept on this site www.flashmecash.com to design my own, however after finishing everything i realized the white that is in the far end of the right hand side of the page is there while in the original site i copied it doesn't every thing on the page full it, what can i do

did anybody get the ideas, pls help,

there are several ways to solve this problem.
1. Adjust table width to the desired screen resoulution.
2. Use percentages instead of pixel widths for your table.
set the main table to 100%
3. Change the background color to something other than grey.

Just a few there are more ways.

you might find specific instructions for one of the ways mentioned by design2odd above helpful..

how to change the table width from pixel to percent..

in your code in the 4 places you have..<table width="765"
replace it with <table width=100%

and you'll find the stripe has disappeared:)

also you have copied some code which causes a pop up advertizing window to open..and you can remove this if you don't want it..
it's at the bottom of the page of code..take out everything after </html> staring with the following..

Check your cell spacing, make sure it is on 0, you can do this by clicking on the table in WYSIWYG view and looking at the properties.
It may also be that the background colour of some of your cells is white and not grey.
