In my CSS the result has a white border around my colored borders. Can you please tell me how to remove the white?

Also, the center panel is supposed to be 100% tall so it is a box around the content extending to the height of the frame it's in, but notice it is only as high as the content, not as high as the browser window it was in.

Here is the code, but it is also in the HTML file attached. thanks!

<table style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 1px solid #000000; width: 100%; height: 100%; text-align: center; background-color: #ffffff;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tbody>
        <tr>
            <td>
            <table style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 20px solid #efefef; width: 100%; height: 100%; text-align: center;">
                <tbody>
                    <tr>
                        <td>
                        <table style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 3px solid #006d00; width: 100%; height: 100%; text-align: center;">
                            <tbody>
                                <tr>
                                    <td style="width: 50%; height: 100% !important; text-align: center;">

Is this something that has to be a table?  Div's would work so much better and it would be more current.

                        </table>
                        </td>
                    </tr>
                </tbody>
            </table>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </tbody>
</table>
</body>

As far as the height,  TD is a child of TR. TR is the child of TABLE. In order for the TD to have a height of 100%, either the TR (not recommended) or the TABLE have to have a height of 100%. Because the TD can only be 100% of the height of its parent element.
