Ripple Emulator - background display issues

Hey guys,


So at the moment I am doing an HTML and CSS based interface for a application that will eventually cover bolds, curve and torch devices. To begin with im getting it working on the torch.


In the ripple emulator my program does not scroll until the content spills over the page, however on the device despite of this the screen always has extra background to display (left, right and beneath)


The background is set as a global body background and is supposedly the correct resolution for the device (360x480). My meta tag view port is the suggested '<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height,user-scalable=no,initial-scale=1.0">'


If anyone could help me with wrapping my head around how this screen/emulator and background size combination interacts with each other that would be most useful.
