When viewed in Firefox my page looks fine. In IE though there is extra space added to the top and bottom of the cell containing my Flash object. Here is the page:

http://www.glowfishtw.com/flagfootball/index.asp

Here is the code for the cell I'm looking at and I've attached the code for the entire page if it might help. Thanks for any advice or ideas.

  <td colspan="2" rowspan="3" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="padding:0; text-align:center;"><script language="JavaScript"><!--
function PicStrip_DoFSCommand(command, args){
if (command == "status") window.status = args;
}// --></script>
<script language="VBScript"><!--
on error resume next
Sub PicStrip_FSCommand(ByVal command, ByVal args) call PicStrip_DoFSCommand(command, args)
end sub
--></SCRIPT>

change the first TD statement to this, which should eliminate all extra spacing in IE --

 <td colspan="2" rowspan="3" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="padding:0; margin:0px; border:0px; overflow:visible; display:inline; text-align:center;">
