Hi Tom,

to see what is changing, use the following.

\usepackage{layouts}

after \begin{document} have the layout printed:

\pagediagram

\pagedesign

In the next step I load the geometry package with

1in left and right..

\usepackage[lmargin=1in,rmargin=1in]{geometry}

and find no difference between this version and the version withput the
package. However if I set the margins to 1.5in each, the document clearly
gets longer. Without diving deeper I guess the margin is correct. I suggest
you print out a sample page and check the margins in the printed document.

Uwe

PS: To easily generate larger amounts of text I like the blindtext package.
