The relevant code:

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
BODY {
 margin: 0;
}
-->
</STLYE>

Or you can place it inside a .css file and use:

<LINK REL=STYLESHEET TYPE="text/css" HREF="site1.css">

Then put 

BODY {
 margin: 0;
}

Into a file called site1.css.

Both of these go inside your <HEAD> </HEAD> tags.

I had the same problem. You should use Style Sheets to define margins in
HTML 4.01 Transitional. Browsers that don't understand style sheets
don't understand margin definitions anyway, so you may as well convert
them.

I can't seem to get my HTML documents to be Valid HTML 4.01
Transitional.  I need these attributes (topmargin, leftmargin,
marginwidth, marginheight ) in my body tag.  Everything works fine, but
I'd like to be able to show that my documents are W3C compliant.  Why do
I keep getting this error and what does it mean?  Is it my the SGML
parser?
