Unwanted padding in all HTML docs

This is driving me insane, and I can't seem to fix it. I am getting an 8px padding on the top and left of any and all HTML docs I make.
Example: http://www.oregonstate.edu/groups/fwclub/new/index.html

That is the most complicated one, of course. I then proceeded to test with just an image on a page, and it still did that. I did big images, small images, gifs, jpegs, it's still there!

I am using Text Wrangler to code the pages, but I also tried Text Edit and it still appeared. Is there something I can do to make this stop occurring??? Am I just really stupid, and that has always been there but I never noticed?

You don't have a DocType declaration in ur page, which puts IE into "quirks mode" and its broken box model. Notice that u have also 34 html errors.

Anyway, I guess that this
[HTML]body {
margin: 0px;
}[/HTML]
may solve ur problem.
Let me know plz if it works.

Thanks! I forgot about running it through the HTML validator (showing my novice-ness, I know). And now I know what DocType is for.... Thank you!
