Overlapping style sheets using: CSS Sculptor and CSS form builder

Hi

I've got a css problem when using css form builder in a site sculptor page.

This is hard to explain, so I've attached 3 screen prints which hopefully will be self explanatory:
1 firefox web page view of css form. It is the same in explorer, but if I click the explorer compatiblity tool, the form shifts up the page and displays properly.
2 dreamweaver split code/design view.
3 a different page without css form builder on it (uses image resizer brilliantly).

Basically the form positions itself in the 'content' section but only starts where the LeftColumn content finishes.

if you look closely at the screen prints the css form only starts, at the 'closing point' of the LeftColumn1 div.

I have also tested, removing all content from my left column and yes the form done slide up the page ...

so I think <!-- I need a closing div tag, but don't know what it should be called--> see below where I think it needs to be placed.

Thnaks
Nathan


<div id="outerWrapper">
<div id="header"><img src="images/logo-image.jpg" alt="Logo" width="960" height="140" /></div>
<div id="topNavigation">
<?php require_once("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu.php"); ?>
</div>
<div id="contentWrapper">
<div id="leftColumn1">
</div>

<!-- I need a closing div tag, but don't know what it should be called-->

<div id="content">
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="content" -->
<!-- intro -->
<div class="page_text_cent">
<h1>page header text</h1>
</div>
<!-- contact form -->
<div id="Form_Cool_ProgressWrapper">
<form class="Cool_MyForm" id="Form_Cool_MyForm" name="MyForm_Cool_R" method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>">
<!-- rest of form etc

I think the form css has a clear:both; somewhere that needs to be removed. If you post a url where I can view it I can find the exact line.

remove the clear:both from the form.Cool_RatPack fieldset.Cool_RatPack style.

Thanks for that Ray ... it fixed it.

Trying not to be too much of a pain, there also set of extra bullet points which stem from the content.css file

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper ul {
list-style-type:square; /*changed from list-style: circle;*/
margin: 0 0 0 20px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
}

If I code out the list style ... it clears site wide ...
/* list-style-type:square;changed from list-style: circle;*/

How do I turn this off in the form builder's css without sacrifing the bullet point on my side navigation lists ... see same link as before.

If I manually delete all the <ul> and <li> (opening & closing tags) from the form they do disappear striped down eg of what I mean...

FROM...
<ul class="Cool_RatPack">
<li>
<fieldset class="Cool_RatPack" id="Rat_Pack_Booking_Enquiry_Form">
<legend class="groupHeader">Rat Pack Booking Enquiry Form</legend>
<ul class="formList">
<li class="formItem"> <span class="fieldsetDescription"> Required * </span> </li>
<li class="formItem">

TO....
<!-- <ul class="Cool_RatPack">
<li> -->
<fieldset class="Cool_RatPack" id="Rat_Pack_Booking_Enquiry_Form">
<legend class="groupHeader">Rat Pack Booking Enquiry Form</legend>
<!-- <ul class="formList">
<li class="formItem"> -->
<span class="fieldsetDescription"> Required * </span>
<!-- </li>
<li class="formItem"> --> etc etc

Thanks
Nathan
