Smile Creating a text margin on a page

Hi,

I'm trying to create a text margin such as the one shown here http://www.jessicahagedorn.net/?page_id=8 so that the text is in a defined column and doesn't wrap around the graphic. How can I best go about this?

I've tried numerous body.page-id-xxxx codes in various places but none seemed to accomplish this. I'm not terrible well versed in CSS, so please be gentle.

Many thanks for your help!

Paul

If you look at their code, you will see that is a table with multiple columns. one column is the image, one is the space and one is the text.

So to answer your question, build a table in the post

the extension FireBug for FireFox is a great tool for seeing things like this.

Thanks! I actually did look at the code Firebug but had no idea where to start. Is it possible to just nab the table code from that site and modify it or should I start from scratch. And how do I construct a table in Atahualpa?

Thanks for your patience.

your not creating a table in Atahualpa, you are creating a table in a wordpress post. you will be creating an HTML table (and there are lots of how to's on the web)

The theme 'styles' the look and feel of your site. once you have the post built with a table, then you might need to style it. There is a section in the theme options for table styling or you could code your own in the CSS Inserts.
