background image in tables longer than table - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi I have two background images in a table that are going beyond the actual table... you can see it to the right of "request disabilities" in the gray area, the black line extends beyond the table area, and it also happens on the bottom... I can fix it quite easily by adding another table cell with a one pixel shim.gif in it with a black background...but was just wondering why the background image does that. thanks in advance AZ Web http://www.staffordwww.com/UACommencement/...

    Default background image in tables longer than table

    Hi

    I have two background images in a table that are going beyond the actual
    table...

    you can see it to the right of "request disabilities" in the gray area, the
    black line extends beyond the table area, and it also happens on the
    bottom... I can fix it quite easily by adding another table cell with a one
    pixel shim.gif in it with a black background...but was just wondering why
    the background image does that.

    thanks in advance

    I'm having a "similiar" problem, trying to contain a <p> tag keeping it the
    same
    size as the backgroung image in a div. I made a custom class for the p,
    making it the same height/width, but it refuses to obey me!! LOL
    see here:

    when the window gets re-sized smaller, the p overflows.

    It's probably this:

    <img src="assets/mainimages/spacer.gif" width="1" height="1" border="0"
    alt="">

    I found that at the end of your source code. Try removing the 1 pixel wide
    spacer and see if that eliminates your problem.
