    just a quick look at your site, I havent tested it but since you are using IE in quirks mode without specificying a doctype.. use this instead of the one you have for .akaMainBorder

    Code:
    .akaMainBorder {
    	border: 10px solid #FFF;
    	margin: 10px;
    }
    As for a doctype.. you should find one that works for you and use it so it wont throw IE in quirks mode..

    Very cool thanx.. But that creates another problem.. I wanted the flash not to have padding just to be touching the main white border right.. And the rest is good.. That helps couse i can see the border in IE now but... Now the flash is got a DOUBLE BORDER. couse the hole table expended. Any ideas?

    Have a look again http://protolithic.com/problem.html grrr..

    The reason is because IE is in quirks mode, you need to fix that by assigning the proper doctype to it so it will work properly.. a nice feature MS put into the most popular browser on the planet... thank you bill!!

    Make this the first line in your markup if you are using HTML..

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    If you are using XHTML use this

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    as a quick fix (but not perminent) do t his.. instead of applying the border to the table wrap a div around the whole thing and put the border on that.. for instance..

    HTML Code:
    <body>
      <div class=".akaMainBorder"> <!-- beginning of div  -->
        <table.......> <!-- take class=".akaMainBorder" off  -->
        ...
        ...
        </table>
      </div><!-- end of div -->
