Not quite:

\topmargin+\headheight+\headsep+\textheight+\footskip=total page height

There's also a default one-inch margin at the top of the page, before  

The LaTeX manual (2nd edition) has a drawing of this (inconvenient)  
page design on p. 182.

Personally, to get one-inch margin on all sides of the page (top,  
bottom, left, right) without any header, I'm using the following code:


     \divide\textheight by\baselineskip

But a better solution seems to be the geometry package. I haven't  
tried it myself (lack of time for experimentation), but many people  
swear by it.
