CSS color change causes strange layout

CSS color change causes strange layout

Hi. I am a complete beginner with Webassist (and fairly new to webdesign) and have created a website using CSS Sculptor and Google maps Pro. All was well until I changed the css color for html, body, div, span, applet, etc. On two of my pages (Home page and Contact page) I now have a wide band at the bottom which goes right across the screen. Why should this happen on just two pages and what has caused it?

Also, my Google Map on the Location page is now not displaying correctly as I changed the above colors from white to yellow.

The website can be found at: jevington2

I would really appreciate some help!

All appears OK now, - I assume you removed that style alteration.

One wouldn't normally touch the 'html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6' style - this is just a generic set of rules for cross-browser consistency. A style change here could have wide reaching effects!

If you need help with the appearance of a particular element, post back here.

The page looks good for me as well. What browser are you using to view the pages?
