What you are about to witness I'm sure is a disgrace to developers everywhere.

I've got five 64x64 social icons I want to place in a table next to each other horizontally with no spacing (or possibly a single pixel of spacing?) and align it on the right side of the screen. I want all the social icons to be on the same row, just one after the other. I'm getting a lot of spacing in between the images as it is now.

<div>
  <div>
 	<table class="no-spacing" cellspacing="0" align="right">
         <tr align="right">
           <td><a href="url"><img src="url" alt="Facebook" style="width:64px!important;height:64px!important"></a></td>
           <td><a href="url"><img src="url" alt="LinkedIn" style="width:64px!important;height:64px!important"></a></td>
           <td><a href="url"><img src="url" alt="Twitter" style="width:64px!important;height:64px!important"></a></td>
           <td><a href="url"><img src="url" alt="Google" style="width:64px!important;height:64px!important"></a></td>
           <td><a href="url"><img src="url" alt="YouTube" style="width:64px!important;height:64px!important"></a></td>
         </tr>
   	</table>
  </div>
  
  <br>
  <br>
  <br>
  <hr>
  
</div>

The important tags were recommended to me in another thread by a user because of the pixellation and/or distortion of the original image once I was linking it in the page. It works, so hopefully I can leave it.

This is both simpler and more irritating than you know.  Here's my demo http://www.dibsiam.net/dibsiam/IconRow/ .  If you look at the source code you will see there are no line breaks between the links.  That is because, at least in Firefox, if you put them in there they show up as spaces on the page.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

<head>
<title>Icon Row</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!-- 
a:link {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;} 
img {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;} 
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
Icon Row
<div align="right">
<a href="http://www."><img alt="ab (2K)" src="ab.jpg" height="64" width="64" /></a><a href="http://www."><img alt="ab (2K)" src="blue.jpg" height="64" width="64" /></a><a href="http://www."><img alt="ab (2K)" src="blueston.jpg" height="64" width="64" /></a><a href="http://www."><img alt="ab (2K)" src="bluesurf.jpg" height="64" width="64" /></a><a href="http://www."><img alt="ab (2K)" src="cb.jpg" height="64" width="64" /></a></div>
</body>
