Hi Folks,

This is an easy question but I thought I'd save myself some trial-and-error by asking the experts.

I have a table in which the rows and cells are arranged how I want them. But, the whole table is too close to the window's top and left edges. What is the simplest/easiest way to move the whole table left and down by some number of pixels?

Thanks a lot

Rich

I mean move the whole table right, not left, and down, of course!

Just add a stylesheet reference to the head section of your document, and adjust the pixel values to suit:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body         { margin:40px; }
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
 etc...
