My CSS guru says:

"It's equally broken (text off the left edge) for me in Firefox 3.0
and 1.5 as it is on trunk.  The page asks for a negative half an
inch of margin, and that's what it gets.

There is a rule that gives body a half-inch margin-left to
compensate (line 283), but that's overriden by a later rule (line
328) at the very beginning of the next style element."
