How can I get rid of the whitespace after the </form> tag in IE?

Or visual: How to get the red and black border overlap eachother?

[code]
<table style="border: solid red 2px;">
<tr><td><form action="/inbox/?forward=12" method="get" style="border: solid black 2px;">
<input type="text" name="Emailaddress" maxlength="50" style="width: 200pt;">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" style="position: relative; top: -2px; width: 75pt; font-size: 11px;">
</form></td></tr></table>
[/code]

Chris,

  I've had that problem too.  Usually, I find that I only really need one form per page so I dont have that problem anymore, but I think I used one of display settings (probably inline) or I used a negative margin (i.e., margin-bottom: -10px;).  Line-height might work too.  I'm not sure.

I know this doesn't help much.  Cd& and seanpowell probably will help more.

Hi chrishintz, try this:

[code]
<table style="border: solid red 2px;">
<tr><td><form action="/inbox/?forward=12" method="get" style="border: solid black 2px; margin:0px;">
<input type="text" name="Emailaddress" maxlength="50" style="width: 200pt;">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" style="position: relative; top: -2px; width: 75pt; font-size: 11px;">
</form></td></tr></table>
[/code]

to make them overlap:

<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="border: solid red 2px;">
<tr><td><form style="display: inline;" action="/inbox/?forward=12" method="get" style="border: solid black 2px;">
<input type="text" name="Emailaddress" maxlength="50" style="width: 200pt;">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" style="position: relative; top: -2px; width: 75pt; font-size: 11px;">
</form></td></tr></table>
