I want to shift the left sidebar down by about 20px on this site

Have tried adding
Code:
margin:20px 0 0 0 ;
to td#left (both in ATO SIDEBARS and in HTML/CSS inserts) - neither option works.

Firebug shows td#left to be the element to style - I came to CSS after the days of tables so am prob missing something simple ...?

Great minds think alike !

But what if I NEEDED to move the LH sidebar (or introduce some space between its top border and the header)

I can't see why adding margin-top space to td#left has no effect

you can move it, just not with margin - the sidebar - td#left is part of a table, so you would have to move teh entire row with the margin.

You can change the postioning and move it that way.

The reason you can't do what you want is because the area you want to target is a table cell. Besides if you add space there it will probably not look right on other pages. I think perhaps taking out the top padding in ATO>Style Posts & Pages>Post Container and removing the top border may be what you are looking for.
