Instead of setting a padding wdith, why not set a margin on your 
warning? Does that yield the same result?

I tried that David, but to no avail. I can set a width on the warning that
removes the scrollbar. Interestingly enough I have another div nested later
in the page that does not cause this to happen...

#content div.footnote{
	padding: 5px;
	background-color: #CCCCCC;
	border: 1px solid #000000;
	text-align: center;
