White space generated at the top of my coldfusion page for no reasons

Hello experts,

I have a very weird problem, that I really can't solve now that I've tried all sorts of coldfusion tags.

A white space is generated at the top of my page, and there is no reasons for it to be like it is.

Really puzzled there...

Many thanks for your precious help
Vincent.
