Default re: Timing Belt Alignment Question

I'm just about to remove the old T-Belt and wanted to see how the original belt marks line up.

I thought, to check for TDC, you turn the crank so the crankshaft marks line up and this should result in the camshaft marks lining up? Didn't happen.

When aligning the camshaft marks, the crankshaft appears to align with the trailing edge of the crank tooth (not centering on the tooth).

Is that what you normally see? Thanks.
