I have a check box list control, and the way ASP.NET outputs the HTML for this is


This leaves a small line of empty space from where the table starts, and the tbody starts.  How do I remove this gap?  Or Top Align the tbody?

Here's an attempted display of what it looks like in a browser

<top of the table>
| this is the gap I want to remove
<tbody begin>
| rows & cells here
| --------
