If you look at the source code you will see there is a grey
background on that table box the picture is in. Try making the
background color of that table item white instead of grey.
Hmm, my mistake. the background does show it is white, but at the
same time it is a clear gif that Freeway generates to fill the gap.
Well, I think you have me going in the right direction. When I take
the graphic out completely and just put an HTML table in that location
on the page, it still adds an additional transparent row to the
table. And of course this is only visible in Firefox 3 on OS X.
So far, nothing has worked. But it is not just the graphic file
itself, but something in how Freeway is building the table and
applying the clear gif.
I’ll try experimenting some more in the morning, it’s almost Midnight
The text is showing slightly bigger in firefox. Because it’s showing it bigger there is 1 extra line of text. By that, the table is getting bigger than it is supposed to be, resulting in showing underlaying pagecolor.

Ah! I don’t fully understand (especially the technical aspects) what
was happening, but it seems that since the adjacent text box was not
big enough to contain the text in it, Freeway was adding another row
to the “invisible” table that contained the adjacent graphic. That
automatically added row was always transparent and was showing the
color of the background.
This problem only appeared in Firefox 3.x on OS X and Ubuntu 8.1. I
was not able to get the problem to appear in any other browser or OS.
To get rid of it, I just reworked the page and made sure that the text
box was large enough to properly enclose the text so that Freeway did
not add any rows to the invisible table.
Thank you Maccie, and thanks to everyone else for their help!
