Page Offset between HTML page and ASP.Net page

Hi Experts,

I have a series of HTMLpages with a menu bar across the top.
All the web pages had the menu bar in the same place.

I converted one of the pages to ASP.Net and while it is the same size, it is offset to the right by about 10 pixels compared to HTML pages.

I assume that this is due to the <Form> tag reuired by an ASP.Net page?

Is there a easy way round this?

Alternatively I could convert the other pages to ASP.Net

Hi AndyCollinson,
I'm not sure about the exact pixels that inserted in <form> tag. Perhaps you can use "JR Screen Ruler" to measure the design adjustment. Hope it helps.

Hi AndyCollinson,
Perhaps you can set the offset margin property inside <body> tag.
<body leftMargin="0" topMargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

Do you know the number of pixels that an ASP.Net <Form> tag inserts? Then I would know how many pixels to put as the offset into the HTML pages?

Alternatively, Is there an ASP.Net way of stopping this offset? Is it the <form> tag anyway?

As I said the other option is to change the other pages into ASP.Net - which would be just as easy...
