I'm trying to put an image in a button, but I can't seem to do it without the extra space on either side of the image (see attached image). How do I do this? Here's what I have:

<button type=button onclick="window.open('tmp/ACHtrans.jsp','_BLANK')">
      <img style="margin: 0; border: 0" src=images/download.jpg>
    </button>

No need to use button
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<style>
		a.button
		{
			border:2px solid #ccc;
		}
		a.button img
		{
			width:100px;
			height:25px;
		}
	</style>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
	<a href="javascript:window.open('tmp/ACHtrans.jsp','_BLANK')" class="button"><img src="lastscan.jpg"/></a>
</BODY>
</HTML>

gurvinder372: Yours would have worked too (with additionally removing the blue border), but santoshmotwani's was far simpler without dealing with styles for the href tag, so I picked that one.

My implementation:

<input type=image src=images/download.jpg onclick="location='tmp/ACHtrans.jsp'">
