Can't get rid of bottom margin in epubs

On my PRS 505, I can't seem to get rid of a bottom margin in my epubs. At the bottom of each screen full of text there will always be at least one blank line, sometimes 2/3. This happens even when I set all margins to 0 in the style sheet and in each document in the epub.

Is this a common problem? A bug with the ADE software on the device?

One thing to try changing is widows and orphans, see CSS Reference - widows. I have typically seen these set to zero, see ePub to ePub - just replace CSS?

Thanks, but it made no difference. I currently have this:

Code:
    <style type="text/css">
		@page 
		{ 
			border-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
			border-style: none;
			border-width: 0;
			color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
			display: none;
			font-size: 10pt; 
			font-weight: normal;
			text-align: left;
			margin: 0;
			text-indent: 0
			widows: 0;
			orphans: 0;
		}
	</style>
And my text is like this:

Code:
<div id="38">
<div>Line 1.</div>
<div>Line 2.</div>
<div>Line 3.</div>
<div>Line 4.</div>
<div>Line 5.</div>
etc
</div>
I have tried many things, but nothing seems to get rid of the bottom margin.

I spoke to soon--it seems I was using the widows/orphans style in the wrong place. Now I have put it in the .body style it seems to be working. So many thanks wallcraft, and have some karma on me.
