For Netscape you need two extra commands. Basically you have two
commands for IE and two commands for Netscape. Both sets can sit in the
body tag with no problems. Therefore your body should look like:

<body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

Hope this helps.

I tried your suggestions but no luck on either 1 or 3.

I do have the topmargin=0  and it still does not get the edges.

and I played with variations of background settings, but they either
other problems, like the image gets somehow corrupted, or the image 
disappears completely.
