    I built a website and I want my 3 colors to extend beyond the screen size. I have been told that my table needs to be at 100% but I still come up with a white border around my page where the colors end. I dont like it.

    Thanks

    If you're familiar with CSS, try setting margins for the body to 0. That should do the trick.

    I am brand new at this - so I am not sure if I am talking about cell padding, although I dot think I am. I will try the the margin setting. If you want take a look it is: www.haar-woods.com

    Be kind. I need to fix alot of things, this was my first shot. I feel that the html code is sloppy and needs to be cleaned up. There are alot of things that I do not know just yet. I am litterally learning in school as we speak.

    Thanks for all the help!

    nvm.. wasn't thinking straight. It might be good to set both margin and padding to 0 though.

    In your source code, add this line inside the style tags. Like so:

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body {margin: 0;padding: 0;}
    .style23 {
       etc, etc, etc...
    -->
    </style>
    I copied your source and tried it out. That's what you're looking for.

    -Edited...By the way, you're background colors aren't showing at all in Firefox/PC. If you care...

    I have not yet gotten to troubleshoot the site in netscape or firefox. I am going to work on that tonight. Thanks for that tip on the background. I will try it out this evening. Let me know if anyone else has any suggestions. I already have a list of fixes. Thanks again to everyone!
