Power Steering Fluid Reservior

Simple question... Should there be a rubber gasket on the power steering fluid resevior cap?

There appears to be fluid leaking from where the cap meets the reservior.

Thanks.

I just checked my ps and there is no gasket on the resevior. Has someone overfilled it? My fluid is about an 1" from the top.

There is a hole in the resevior to let extra fluid out, if I fill mine a little too high and drive up a steep rock it will poor out over the exhaust and smoke.
