The fun part is that it's a regression from bug 278549, which landed last June, but apparently that stray bit of content in http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=mozilla/mailnews/extensions/smime/resources/content/am-smime.xul&rev=1.18&mark=51#51 doesn't actually show in 1.9.1, only in 1.9.2 (which, Willie, did you really intend to be using 3.1a1pre rather than 3.0b3pre, or did you get caught by the accidental update Thursday and you haven't yet downloaded a 3.0 nightly to get back?).

Well, I've actually been running both and yes, it didn't show in 1.9.1

Remove 'em

I'm not quite sure just what a <page orient="vertical"> is, but since we've done without this one being vertical for seven months now, and since most of the am-*.xuls had their orient="vertical" removed by Blake in some 2001 XUL syntax change megapatch, I'm pretty sure we'll get by without these two.

Remove 'em

<page orient="vertical"> is like <vbox orient="vertical">.

The reason the spurious text appears on trunk is that the layout team have been simplifying the code incidentally removing many of the special cases that apply to XUL; in this particular case the case was that XUL used to ignore random text nodes.
