WebView in the BlogWebViewActivity XML wont extend to the edge of the screen.

There seems to be margins on my activities, including my MainActivity.

This is my XML for the BlogWebViewActivity.

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" tools:context=".BlogWebViewActivity" >

    android:layout_alignParentTop="true" />
