I suppose I was seeing that as "top of the paragraph/bottom of the browser toolbar", but I think you're right, it should say "top border of the viewport", which is a better term than "browser window".

Regarding your question yesterday.
In the scenario where margin is added to the <html> element, and Opera, Firefox and IE all provide different results, Firefox is in fact wrong. I found out that was a bug that has been since fixed and will probably appear in Firefox 1.1. Regarding why there is no right margin, I haven't yet found someone that knows the real answer. Apparenly though, this is what's supposed to happen, as Gecko, KHTML and Opera all agree on it.

Regards,
Rich
