editing element.style...sigh (4 posts)

    I've read many of those posts regarding this editing of an html file but I seriously do not understand where this would be at all for my template. Driving me nuts.

    Two questions:

    1/ for my test site http://apgmi.test-lca-website.com/, the main content is in a box that is aparently focing a 0px margin. According to the template author "Hi, It looks like the table in your markup is specifically declaring margin:0." While I am trying to work this out with him, time is important here so I am asking here as well to get another perspective. WHERE do I edit this info?

    2/ Possibly answered by a response to #1, HOW do I understand how I can track this down myself?

    I see "/html/body/div[5]/div/div/div/div/div/div/table" but what I think needs to be edited in the step above(i.e. "/html/body/div[5]/div/div/div/div/div/div").

    Since I am vaguely aware that html pages are generated on the fly from php code, this should mean that I need to edit a php file....or some sort of css file referred to by the php file. This is where I get stuck.

    The html code in which the table is nested within is "<div align="center" style="display:block;clear:both;margin:0;padding:0;">"

    So I see that'style' reference, which I believe is the one I need to edit in order to get the spacing I want. I have zero clue as to where(which file) this style is actually defined so I can edit and move on with life.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not sure of the question, but I have found that the addon "firebug" for firefox to be very helpful finding solutions for these type of problems.

    Which theme are you using?

    Your theme needs to be available here at WordPress.org so we can understand how it works.

    I'm using the Orion theme from simplethemes.com.

    This issue may be specific for this theme but the concept of tracking down/understanding WordPress in general still applies.

    @d_random - I have Firebug, and have even found Chrome's "inspect element" to be of use as well.
