The problem I am experiencing, in the IE browser, but not the Opera browser, is the 2 to 3 pixel "gap" at the bottom of each of the two pictures. Anyone having ideas on a fix would be deeply appreciated.
The problem, I believe, is that IE allocates some space in your table cells for text, based on the default font size. Try adding 'font: 1px;' to your inline style in the table tag. This should remove the gap. The only downside to this solution is that if you want text in some of the cells, you have to include a div or span tag so that you can give them a reasonable font size.
Using font: 1px; is a hack and should not be used.
Please read the link I gave which has 2 suitable solutions and copy solutions given correctly.
Another solution is to concatenate the td and img elements:
<TABLE cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1" bordercolor="#ffffff" style="border-collapse: collapse border">
<tr><td><img src="picts/about-1.jpg" border="0" width="140" height="280" onmousedown="whichElement(event)" alt="Web Site Design and Development Image"></td></tr>
