Thanks to all who replied.

So (going a tiny bit OT here) within the CSS specification, is there any
way of emulating Op7/IE6's behavior, presuming that the browser doesn't
support left-scrolling (as Mozilla does not)?

It's slightly irritating that I can't find a way to center an entire
page, without it going off the page in at least one browser (other than
using max-width hacks) - really is a quite ridiculous state of affairs :/
