Another Outlook 2007 issue: Strange vertical space in table row 2.

I have a strange problem in a fairly straightforward email newsletter. I have a table with 3 rows and 1 column. The first and the last rows td contain an image. But the middle row seems to be placed a pixel to the left, and is not aligning to the other rows. I have tried all sorts of things. Can anybody help?

Here is the code:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {
    background-color: #666666;   
<TABLE width="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<TR >
  <TD width="600"><img src="top.jpg" alt="Triax A/S" width="600" height="99" border="0" /></TD>
</TR >
<TR >
  <TD width="590" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
</TR >
<TR >
  <TD height="13" width=600><img src="bund.gif" alt="TRIAX A/S" width="600" height="13" border="0" /></TD>
  </TR >

Re-check your images, you may have added a 1px buffer that's actually part of the image. It's an honest cropping mistake that could happen to anyone. - Everything Email.
