    I'm making a 200x200px square to use as a background, but when I export it as a png, it gets these transparent borders for some reason, and the file ends up being 273x272
    How do I stop this?

    You only need a parachute if you plan on skydiving twice.

    If 200 x 200 is all you need - why don't you just export as a JPG?
    Do you have to have a vector fro some reason?
    I would think JPG would be better as a background, since they are usually smaller files than the PNG of the same image, and so would give faster load times.

    Do you have a feather set for the edge?

    I don't know what you mean, sorry I'm very new to AI.

    I have found a temporary solution:
    File > Save for Web & Devices > choose JPEG at the right.

    I would still like to know why it gives me borders for future info though.

    Well I wish I could tell you, but I am not all that familiar with AI (in fact I just bought a book to try to learn it..)

    For web graphics I use Photoshop - I'm much more familiar with it. And I always Save for Web & Devices, usually as JPG but sometimes I save as a GIF (for tiny repeating patterns for backgrounds, for example), and I love that PS offers me different qualities to choose from before I save, with previews, and approx load times. Not sure if AI does that?
