However, i recall us having a discussion about the horrors
of nested tables. I cannot remember if that was here or on

WIth this issue that John raises, i see another/different cause.
It is because the page has minimal content. To prove this i
simply added a <ul> with about 20 dummy <li> which filled
up the page. The top light-blue margin is back to normal.
