<body bgcolor="#000000"> and use styles. I am having trouble figuring out ho to do margins this way. I want know margin, yes I have a reason. Can anyone help. Below is what I am trying to do.

<body style="background:#FFFFFF;margin-left=0cm">

Don't use "=" operator in a stylesheet =]

Instead of margin-left=0cm you want

margin-left: 0cm (or px or em or whatever units you're using);

<body style="background:#FFFFFF;margin-left=0cm">


body {
margin-left: 0;

No need to declare units on the 0: 0 is 0 anyway.

<body style="background:#FFFFFF;margin-left=0cm">

Using inline styles pretty much stops CSS being as useful as it should be. As Graft-Creative suggested, placing the CSS in an external file would be much more beneficial.
