How To Remove the Top White Space of Your Web Page?

The top white space of your Web page is provided by the browser's default CSS definition of the margin-top property on the BODY tag. You can remove this white space by adding your own margin-top definition. Because of the cascading order rules, your definition wins over the default definition. Here is a CSS example:

<title>CSS Included</title>
<style type="text/css">
  BODY {margin-top: 0px}
  BODY {background-color: white}
  P {font-family: arial; font-size: 12pt; color: black}
<p>Welcome to FYICenter.com.<br> 
This paragraph should appear right below the top edge 
of the browser window without any white space.</p>
