Netscape reserves the area where the vertical scroll bar would be when the 
page is too short to need scrolling.

To fix this you can place height="100%" in your main page layout table tag, 
or you can place enough content (empty P tags, BR tags etc) below the table 
to make it fill the screen vertically.

The first option is probably cleaner, but it's your option.
