We have tried numerous html and css solutions, but have not got it to work.

I've included the html code and css code below.

Thanks!

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td><table width="760" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="5" background="/images/left-shadow-background.jpg"></td>
        <td><table width="750" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" bgcolor="#ffffff" align="center">
  <tr>
    <td align="center" valign="top"><img src="/images/header.jpg" width="750" height="155" /></td>

Can't seem to replicate your problem. I took your code and viewed it in Firefox and IE and the Table aligns perfectly the top of the page.

Are you viewing the page in an editor or directly in a browser?

Try clearing your Cache (Temp Internet Files) between each view.

Thanks.  I made sure I was getting a fresh page by adding text to the index file.

I still get part of the blue background above the table.  We are trying to have the table at the very top, in which case you would not see any of the blue background.

Can you help?  We want to align the table at the top, such as with http://brantleynurseries.com/.

Thanks!

Thanks for your help!

I found a solution.

I put
     <DIV style="position:absolute;top:0px">
before the top table.  And I put
    </DIV>
at the end of the table.
