I am using Dreamweaver 6 and I have a table (1 row, 1 column) with an image above and below.  I made the CellPad, CellSpace and boarder equal to 0.  For some reason, there is a space between the bottom of the table and the top of the image below.  Can anyone tell me why this is happening?  Thanks for the help... I will paste the code below.

<img src="images/top1.jpg" width="775" height="82" border="0">

I should also mention that there seems to be a space on the left side of the webpage and along the top.  If I try to "Align" to left, then everything is out of wack.

Disregard my second comment.  I made the following change... <body leftMargin=0 topMargin=0>

The original problem with the small gap between the table and the image below is still a problem.  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
BPL

>> body leftMargin=0 topMargin=0
>> body topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 rightmargin=0 bottommargin=0

This approach is now defunct and is not recommended as part of the W3C specifications.  In future browser releases this code will not work as it is not standards compliant.

The correct way is to control all the page elements with style, which provide much more control over the objects on-screen.  Like this...

<head>
<style type="text/css">
  body {margin:0; padding:0}
  table {margin:0;}
  td {margin:0; padding:0}
  img {margin:0; padding:0}
</style>
</head>

Hi bpl5000,

Your cell has a height of 25, images are all height 23.  A 2 pixel gap should exist.
