Different margins in different processors (MMD/Discount versus Pandoc)

Tried searching for this in the discussions but couldn't find anything on this issue.

In short, I get different margins on my preview window, depending on which processor is used. If you look at the attached screenshots, you can see how the margins differ. In each case, I am using the standard and unaltered GitHub Preview Style.

In the first screenshot, I'm using the MMD supplied with Marked2 (although I get the same results using the Discount processor).

In the second, I am using pandoc with the options "-s --from markdown+yaml_metadata_block+footnotes+inline_notes+pipe_tables".

Any suggestions out there for why the margins differ? And how I might fix it so that the preview displays across the entirety of the preview window when I use pandoc?

    Take the -s out from your command. That generates a standalone document (with its own body tag) which is then being injected into Marked's preview markup, resulting in a document within a document.

    Ah, that did it in the preview!

    Will that affect export to HTML, should I want to do that?

    Marked's wrapper will be included in HTML export, your settings should stay the same.
