Gaps Between table rows

I  am writing a web page but having problems with the table rows. The table should look like a tabbed display, so it has 2 rows. The top row has the buttons and the second row has the inner pane.

My problem is the two rows have a gap between them that I cannot fill. I have tried border collapse but it didn't solve my problem. The top row image height is 33px.
</table>
                <table id="tbl_tab" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
            <tr style="height: 33px;">
                <td style="width: 166px; height: 33px;">
                <img src="images/tab/for_sale.png" />
                </td>
                <td style="width: 16px;">
                <img src="images/tab/for_sale_end.png" />
                </td>
                <td style="width: 166px;;">
                <img src="images/tab/wanted_d.png" />
                </td>
                <td style="width: 31px;">
                <img src="images/tab/wanted_d_end.png" />
                </td>
                <td style="width: 100%;">
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td  colspan="5" style="background-position: top; background-repeat: repeat-x; background-image: url('images/tab/top_back.jpg');">
                &nbsp;</td>
            </tr>

The only thing that I can see here that may be causing a space is the &nbsp; in the 2nd row...
(When I need to control row height / width, I often do it with a blank.gif...)

           <tr>
                <td  colspan="5" style="background-position: top; background-repeat: repeat-x; background-image: url('images/tab/top_back.jpg');"><img src="images/blank.gif" height="1" width="0" border="0" alt="blank"></td>
            </tr>

Try removing the "height: 33px" from the <tr> and <td>... so that the row / cell will grow to the size that it needs to...

From your "Original" code it seems as though you have a <table> in another <table>...
Could you please drop ALL the HTML here so that I can get a bigger picture of the layout...
(I suspect the problem lies elsewhere on your page...)

Here it is. Also it uses a css file:

body
{
      padding: 0px;
      font-family: 'Trebuchet MS';
      margin: 0px;
      font-size: 12px;
}
img
{
      border-style: none;
      padding: 0px;
      margin: 0px;
}      
#div_main
{
      width: 100%;
}
#tbl_main
{
      width: 100%;
      background-image: url('images/top_back.png');
      background-repeat: repeat-x;
}
#tbl_tab
{
      width: 100%;
}
#td_logo
{
      width: 102px;
      height: 86px;
      padding-left: 5px;
      padding-top: 5px;
}
.btn
{
      width: 48px;
      vertical-align: middle;
      text-align: center;
}
.header1
{
      font-size: 18px;
      color: #ff4a15;
}

Please try this:
  1. There seemed to be some "white space" in the <td>'s that was causing the gap...
     
     and
     
  2. I've pulled the images into a table on their own, so that you don't have to worry about the 5th <td> being 100% wide (which it obviously can't be)
