I tend to disagree with Mr. Swart. If you have less than 1/4 in. of space between the floor & the front base of the toilet, you can shim it. Most of the time, it's the floor that is not level.
As long as the top of the flange is not higher than 1/4 in. above the floor's surface, you're ok.
I prefer to shim from the rear of the toilet's base - so long as the toilet itself remains relatively level. use plastic shims designed for such use or flatten a small piece of 1/2 in. copper pipe with a hammer. Don't use wood -it will eventually rott.
