I'm having trouble remembering how to set up margins for a site to be viewed in Netscape 4.x

I know that it's things like "topmargin" and "leftmargin" for IE, but it's worded differently for Netscape.

for most browsers other than ie use marginheight & marginwidth

so if your trying to eliminate margins you would use something like this:

<body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginheight="0" margin width="0">

im not 100% sure that the css alternative will work in nn4.x but here it is anyways:

<body style="padding: 0; margin: 0;">

:thumbsup:

No.
The CSS alternative won't work in NN4.

er, just to be clear:

you can set margins in NS4 via styles, but implementation can be problematic, espesh w/ right and bottom margins...

What NS4 won't do via styles is reduce the body margins below its internal defaults of 8x8 pixels: it adds these values to whatever values you specify.

Also insists you specify the unit (px), iirc...
