    Tiny white bar drivnig me nuts!

    Im trying to get rid of this tiny white space on the right side of my banner but no matter what I do it wont go away. Can anyone help me out pleeeeaseee.
    This is what I have currently -
    Its in a table of its own which is the very top of the page -
    <TABLE border="0" cellborder="0" cellspacing="0" WIDTH="100%" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0"
    <TR>
    <TD BGCOLOR="#ffffff"><IMG SRC="pictures/web/mtlogo400b.gif"
    ALIGN="left" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="153" BORDER="0" STYLE="position:absolute"><IMG
    SRC="pictures/web/mtbannerpic.jpg" cellborder="0" cellspacing="0" WIDTH="725" HEIGHT="167" ALIGN="right"
    BORDER="0"></TD>
    </TR>
    </TABLE>
    It may have a bunch of unwanted tags in there because im trying everything I can think of, but it wont work. The reason for the STYLE tag with the absolute property is because I have a gif which is laying on top of a jpg when lower res monitors are looking at it, it overlaps.
    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Tiny white bar drivnig me nuts!

    First off:

    - you are missing the closing ">" in the table opening string
    - you have a duplicated CELLSPACING="0"

    and...
    what I think the problem is, is that you have a rightmargin on the page. Simply put a rightmargin="0" in the body tag, like this:

    <body rightmargin="0"> that should do it.

    I hope that works!

    Ok, so the closing > was taken care of while I was still playing around with it, as well as the duplicate cellspacing tag. But I tried adding the rightmargin tag and it didnt help. Im new to this page im working on trying to improve it. I did notice there is a css stylesheet for BODY up top that looks like this -

    BODY {
    BACKGROUND: #FFFFFF; MARGIN: 0px; FONT: 11px verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000
    }

    and im still new to css, but by the looks of this table below, im guessing the css isnt being properly used? or being used at all actually.

    <TABLE WIDTH="100%" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0">
    <TR>
    <TD BGCOLOR="#ffffff" COLSPAN="2"><IMG
    SRC="pictures/web/mtlogo400b.gif" ALIGN="left" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="153"
    BORDER="0" STYLE="position:absolute"><IMG SRC="pictures/web/mtbannerpic2.jpg"
    WIDTH="725" HEIGHT="167" ALIGN="right" BORDER="0"></TD>
    </TR>
    </TABLE>

    Re: Tiny white bar drivnig me nuts!

    the css seems fine, and a BODY tag css does not get called in the html later on (as a class or either), so it is properly used.

    I can't really tell what is going on exactly unless you post the whole page HTML here. But try changing the background color of the page to black (#000000), and see if the white line still shows up.
