Making changes to CSS on products_detail.php page

Making changes to CSS on products_detail.php page

I successfully generated products_results and products_detail pages using DA. I've made manual changes to the /style section of those pages to make them look better and work in the design - mostly with good results. But I can't figure out how to move the right side black border to the left so it lines up with the navigation vertically and how to create some space between the top Nav and the Details container. Can you point me to the right place in the page code to make those adjustments?
You can see the page at http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_detail.php?ID=4
and the products_detail.php file is attached. Thank you!

First it looks like you have to add:

#Details_Basic_Default_ProgressWrapper {
clear: both;
}
#mainnav {
float:right;
}
#Details {
margin-right:0;
}


Then update your footer class to use: width:auto; (main.css line 35)

Took your suggestions and it worked perfectly and looks great! Thank you. This was extremely helpful.
However, just noticed now the Footer is blown out to the right on the non-product pages, Looks fine on product_details and product_results but check out http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/index2.php So I changed the main.css footer class back to '893' from 'auto' and it's still blown out to the right - weird. Was not misaligned before. Scratching my head. What do you suggest?

Then I realized I had the same initial right-alignment issue with the products_results.php page. So I tried using the same /style code there you recommended above. It actually corrected and vertically-aligned the right side of the box - good. See http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_results.php?Category_ID=32
But I'd like the left side of the Results container to vertically align with the left side of the logo the way it now does on the updated Details page (http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_detail.php?ID=4 ). Can you suggest a code adjustment to make that work? Attached is products_results.php file.
Thank you again!

It looks like you need:

#Results_Compact_Default_ProgressResultsWrapper {
clear:both;
}



then you just need to add the auto width back to the footer.

That worked - great!
Still had the problem that the change to 'width: auto' in the main.css expanded the footer beyond the frame on all but the product pages, So I restored my old main.css and that fixed the alignment on all the non-product pages but shrunk the footer too far on the product pages. So I added the' width:auto' to the style section of the product pages only - not main.css and voila - all pages are aligned now.
Now the only small issue I have left on this: some weird stray stuff at the top left(under the logo) on http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_results.php?Category_ID=32 - see attached where I highlight it. It's nice and clean on http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_detail.php?ID=4 which is how I'd like it to be on the products_results.php
Can you spot what could be causing that?

Thank you again - your support has been awesome.

Add this to your CSS:

ul {
list-style: none;
}

Probably simple but I'm stuck. Got the products_detail page looking just the way it should except for top left of the product container is overlapped by the logo. See http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/products_detail.php?ID=2
What change to /style would you suggest so we can move the product container down and clear of the logo?
Thank you.

I'd just add a margin to the div to push it down.

#Details_Basic_Default_ProgressWrapper {
margin-top: 72px;
}
