I have CSS code that is supposed to have the top row of a table up against the top of the browser, but there is still a space above the table.  What am I doing wrong??
body {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	margin-top: 0px;	
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	margin-left: 0px;
	margin-right: 0px;
}
 
   #submenustyle {
      margin: 0 auto;
      text-align: left;
	  height: 30px;
      vertical-align: middle;
   }
 
 
 
.menulinks {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	font-weight: bold;
	color: #4169E1;
	vertical-align: top;
 
}
 
a.menulinks {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	font-weight: bold;
	color: #4169E1;
	vertical-align: top;
	text-decoration:none;
 
}
 
a.menulinks:hover {  
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	font-weight: bold;
	color: #00008B;
	vertical-align: top;
	text-decoration:none;
 
}
 
 
.maintext {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 10px;
	color: #000000;
	vertical-align: top;
			
 
}
 
a.maintext {
        font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        text-decoration:none;
        font-size: 10px;
		color: #000000;
 
 
}
 
a.maintext:hover {  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 10px;
	color: #012315;
	background-color: #FDC844;
 
 
}
 
 
 
 
 
.subtopictext {
        font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 18px;
	color: #7b7b7b;
}  
 
div#main h1 {
	margin:10px 0 0 7px;
	padding:0;
	width:98%;
	text-align:left;
	font-size:25px;
	color:#333;
	border-bottom:1px dotted #012315;
	font-weight:normal;
}

Border Collapse is part of your problem.

Add the style to the table(s) of:
border-collapse:collapse;

And also you will want to add the [cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"] to the top table.

Recommend using the Firefox add-on of Web Developer and you can see the table outlines (outline>table>cells).
