I copied the info on the "Add Widgets" page and was able to get some in my footer, however, I just don't know how to use the coding effectively. Can someone help me out here so I can get a further understanding of how the coding works? It would be greatly appreciated.

What I am after is three widgets of equal size with some padding between them, sort of what is at the bottom of this page.

My test site is here.

Looks like you have it sorted Norm? Or do you want to style those widget areas further?

By using Chrome "Inspect element" or Firebug, you can identify the exact element you want to style and add that as a CSS insert to your CSS inserts.

Thank Jam. As the day went on and something came to mind I tried different things and eventually achieved the desired effect.
How do I mark this as solved?

I appreciate you getting back to me though. I will have to check out "inspect element" as I really don't know what I'm doing

You can thank Larry for that info. It was one of the first things Larry taught me, and has been a fantastic way to learn about CSS and applying it to specific elements on a page.
You could individually style the Widget titles for that entire widget area (but not other widget areas), or you could individually style Widget areas 1, 2 and 3 differently. Titles, text, alignment, backgrounds... Have fun
