[thelist] HV menu "phantom line" problem

I recently added a horizontal "HV" menu from Dynamic Drive to one of our sites so as to provide multi-level menu functions that could (at least sometimes) be properly read/rendered by IE6. (I really wanted to go the CSS route, but could not find a CSS-driven menu that would work to properly show menu sub-levels in IE6).

Soon after posting the pages with the HV menu, I realized that something in the script was throwing a one-pixel red line underneath the menu itself. This line appears to be #800001 in color (a color that was originally utilized in the menu script for a hover background, but has been replaced with pink in this example). I cannot figure out what is causing the "#800001" one-pixel line to appear.

If you look at this page, http://www.lieffcabrasersecurities.com/working.htm, you should be able to see the "phantom" red line. The extra line runs the full width of the table containing the menu, even though the menu only appears in the 500 rightmost pixels of the table.

If anyone could explain where this extra line is coming from (not to mention how to remove it) I'd be extremely grateful. 

Thanks in advance.
