Lotus notes issues - unsurprisingly

Hi all.  I really need some help with this.

<body topmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0">
    <table width="600" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
        <tr>
            <td width="400"><img src="top-banner.jpg" width="400" height="50" alt="" /></td>
            <td width="200" bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="200" height="50" alt="" /></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td width="400">
                <table width="400" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                    <tr>
                        <td width="1" bgcolor="#E7E7E7"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="200" alt="" /></td>
                        <td width="9" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="9" height="200" alt="" /></td>
                        <td width="380"><img src="images/main-img.jpg" width="380" height="200" alt="" /></td>
                        <td width="9" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="9" height="200" alt="" /></td>
                        <td width="1" bgcolor="#E7E7E7"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="200" alt="" /></td>
                    </tr>
                </table>
            </td>
            <td width="200"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="200" height="200" alt="" /></td>
        </tr>
    </table>
</body>

So what i am trying to do is give the impression of 1px grey borders width 9px of white space surrounding an main image.  Some text will go beneath the image so i aim to get it to resize w/borders in tact.

It seems to render fine in all clients except lotus notes which appears to screw up the width of the td cells?

Any ideas?

Ryan, the problem might be related to the nesting of the tables. Notes really chokes on complex table based layout, so I'd recommend testing it with the other content removed and see if you get the same result.

doesn't seem to work either.

I think the problem lies with the way Notes renders a td with a bgcolor (#E7E7E7) with width of 1.

Just can;t seem to cope.
