If the BODY is offset from the HTML then offset should report that number - but it's zero in webkit.

Test case here:

Addition: though this might seem an esoteric case, in fact if you make body { position: relative } then offset is going to be wrong for _all the time_ in Safari/Chrome, because it will miss the last step.

Styling the body with margin for centering or whatever is not uncommon: it means avoiding wrapping everything in an extra div tag. And if you do that, then you're likely to do a position:relative because you're most likely to want everything relative to the body than the html.

Firefox2 also does not get this right for exactly the same reasons.

Adding position relative to the body element opens up a huge mess when dealing with offset. Margin is okay in the latest SVN but position relative and borders just wreak havoc.
