I have found that precise measurements within images can only be
achieved by placing the graphics right next to each other. That is you
cannot use a return in your code. Here is an example:

Table A is 600 pixels in width and you have a graphic that is split into
3 gifs (doesn't matter if they are not the same width, as long as they
add up to 600 pixels). So you place your graphics one right after the
other <img src=x.gif width=200 height=?><img src=x.gif width=200
height=?><img src=x.gif width=200 height=?> and so on, if you have
another row of graphics do not use the return key just keep on typing.
This forces the table to wrap the images which extend out beyond 600
pixels WITHOUT adding any extra space . . . which is what you are
probably seeing in Nav VS Explorer.
