	In IE at least, forms have a trailing margin when placed inside a
table. Set the margin for your form to 0px, and it should fix it:

<style type="text/css">
   form { margin: 0px }

	This approach is standards-compliant, works in IE 4+, without
side-effects in Netscape 6 or Opera 5. It does not fix the margin problem in
Netscape 4.x., however.
