I think because there is no solution to your
problem ... the software is acting as the specification is written.

Correct ... because you set the viewport to 100%
of the width ... and it is the viewport that gets bordered.

But I'm confused when you say:

If a standard solution doesn't give you what you
want, then you are of course going to need a "not very standard solution".

I'm unfamiliar with the intermediate output
format as I only teach the specification as I
have interpreted it ... but I thought it
important to point out that if someone does help
you with a solution based on the intermediate
file then you'll be lucky that you have something suitable to your needs.

If you have a requirement not met by the
specification, then send as many details and
examples as possible to the W3C for consideration as future user requirements.
