See that photo in the article? Well it has vspace=10 and hspace=10, but it doesn't have ANY spacing around it. At least, not in my IE5. I tried everything to get that spacing right, but the text remains on a 1px distance of the table with the photo. I'm desperate (I am not even allowed to share this URL, as it's the prototype for a new design!), so please help me.
Any suggestions as to why it isn't working? (Just to make things clear, I assigned the spacing tags to the table, not the image.)

That's not it. I used the vspace and hspace by changing some parametres in Dreamweaver. That means it's supported, and I know it is.
If I would add spacing to the picture, there would be space between the picture and the table border. The same goes for changing the Cellpadding or Cellspacing; it changes the spacing within the cell. I just want to have a white border around my table on the outside, that's all . . .
If you want a border around your picture you would use the border attribute of the image tag. I believe it will show up as the same color as your link colors though since image borders are (were?) used primarily to mark the image as a link back in the days before people actually wanted their pages to look good. The best way to add borders of your choosing is to edit the image in your graphic editor of choice and add them. I know in Paint Shop Pro that you can add them simply by choosing the Add Borders command off the image menu.
Also because a program like Dreamweaver supports an attribute on a particular tag doesn't mean that the attribute is valid in all browsers. The browser companies are given recommendations on features of HTML to implement but how they implement those features is up to their interpretation.
