I have a backgroud in <table>, how would I stop it from tiling?

this needs to be done without CSS as it is used as a email signiture, thus we cannot use CSS

Thanks

create an image and call it spacer.gif

Make it the same size in height or width of your background image.  whichever you use, the opposite length is 1 pix in size.  Set the image as a transparent .gif and place it in your table.  Create a column or row (depends on your need).

so for example if i want it to stop tiling vertically, i would:

<table background='test'gif'>
//Content
<tr><td><img src='spacer.gif'></td></tr>
</table>

correct?

thanks
