Please can anyone tell me the best way to left justify a web page?  So that, the left edge of the page sits against the left edge of the screen (with 10px of padding).

using just a little css, this can be done fairly easy:

<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<style type="text/css">
body,html {

<p>Hello, this text aligns directly to the top,<br>
and 10 px from the left.</p>
<p>&nbsp; </p>
<div style="background-color:#00FF00;">
  <p>This div is also aligned 10px from the left,</p>
  <p>just like the &lt;hr&gt; above </p>

great solution for a few pages but if it is for jsut a single page you can do it with fewer keystrokes by adding this to the body tag
