well, page margins don't prevent a site from working... it's not a 
decision between a site that validates and one that works, it's a 
decision between one that validates, and one that in NN4 (and 
others) has a bit of space at the top and left...

so, just make sure your design doesn't *need* to pushed into the 

it's also worth noting that you can set different margins for different 

body 	{	top-margin : 5px ;
			left-margin : 10px ;
			right-margin : 0px ;
			bottom-margin : 15px ; }
