User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.3) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/1.5.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.3) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/1.5.0.3

With Firefox 1.5.0.2 pages which are horizontally centered shift slightly (left to right) depending the length of their content. If the page content does not reach the bottom of the browser window, the centered content will be slightly to the right of pages which do go all the way to the bottom. This can be fixed by adding 'height:100%' to the body,html in css, but this seems to make it impossible to have a margin at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for any thoughts,
Adrian
