    Ebay Template HTML help please

    Hi, I am new to this forum and I would greatly appreciate some HTML help.
    I am creating a ebay template for a mate at work for his watch selling business. He wants a template to use within his listings. I am relatively ok with HTML but this is baffling me. The code works perfectly when hosted on a normal browser but when inserted into ebay it decides to break. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I get a white bar across the template (shown in attached picture)

    How do I stop this ? It seems to be a break in the tables I think.



    Code:
    <html>
    
    <title>Watch-Cellar</title>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    body,td,th {
    	color: #D6D6D6;
    }
    </style>
    
    
    
    
    <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF"  text="#FFFFFF" link="#FFFFFF">

    that's what it looks like to me is the break between tables. Try to set the css like this

    Code:
    table:first-child{
    margin-bottom:0px;
    }

    Let me know if that fixes your issue. That will only make the very first (the top) table have no margin on the bottom. That way you can set bottom margins for any other tables you have. If you don't want ANY bottom margins, then just take out :first-child and the rest will be fine.
