problem is netscape reserves that space on the right for 
its scroll bar. to get rid of it, create a frameset
with your first frame set to one pixel wide with
all your borders and marginwidths, etc set to "0".
that leaves the rest of the window for your main page.
set the SCROLL attribute of this frame to to "no" or "0".
that gets rid of scrolling on the right. analyze the
code to the following site:
Now set your table to 100% wide with like a bgcolor
color in one of the rows and it should stretch all
the way right.
