Hi Could someone please explain to me why my blog layout scrolls sideways? http://noscriptblog.tumblr.com/ Its like there is a right hand margin that shouldn't be there. Its really confused me. Thanks! p.s.If anybody is familiar with Tumblr - could they explain why the headings and date show up in my text posts but not in any other post type. (The date in the question post has been moved down onto the post body - white background and white text for some reason :S)

I've have changed the code to px but still have the same problems. The box placement is still different. I also thought that this might be to do with word length. But there are other tabs in a preview I viewed that have the same number of characters as text ("chat") for example, and they still have different box placement to "text". I suppose it could be something to do with Tumblr but I would have thought I could pick up the problem in Firebug still.

The only way i see of fixing this, where you will have exact distance from left of screen is to use a fixed width, that will accommodate largest amount of current characters 'answer', remove left/right padding and align center

.myposttype {	-moz-transform: scale(1) rotate(-90deg) translate(0px, 0px) skew(0deg, 0deg);	background-color: #FFFFFF;	border-top-left-radius: 20px;	border-top-right-radius: 20px;	font-family: "Courier New",Courier,monospace;	font-size: 125%;	font-weight: bold;	left: -53px; /*amended by dsonesuk*/	padding: 5px 0 30px;/*amended by dsonesuk*/	position: absolute;	text-align: center; /*added by dsonesuk*/	top: 20%;	width: 83px; /*added by dsonesuk*/	z-index: -50;}

Cheers for this! This does solve that specific problem, but does have knockon effects. I guess its whatever is the lesser of two evils! I'll try it out on some different screen sizes and see what happens. Is the word length causing the problem then because the word length is still adding horizontal width even though the parent div has been rotated?
