Why can't I get some padding on my posts?

I've read, searched, and read some more. I hope I haven't missed it, but I can't seem to find anything to indicate WHY my text on my posts is jammed up against the Left and the Right sides. I need margins/padding...

If I'm looking right at it, and too much of a doofus to see it - I'll take my whuppin'...
The inserted images and galleries look fine, but the text - noooo go.

Additionally - I can NOT get a link to post in my posts. On the homepage, the CONTACT button will take you to the contact page, where our info@misskitsapfairandstampede email is located. I've done everything but stand on my head when I type - I can't get it to work... I've type in manually, HTML code, I've done it all - when I add a link (URL or EMAIL) - nothing displays on the page; however - it shows in the editing panel when I try to edit.. <sigh>

Can someone shine the light on me?

additionally, I have tried suggestions from other posts that direct you to set padding in the A T Options - style center column.

I have Padding: 20px 20px;

Looks fine - but the side margins of the posts STILL jam up against the "wall" of the center column.

I've tried padding-left 5px;

I've tried padding-right 5px;

I've tried 20px 5px 5px 20px;

I've tried setting the padding in the posts body area. I am going mad! Obviously, like many others here - my forte' is not coding - I just need to get this darn website to match my folks' desire - and they don't like the text jammed against the walls of the center column.

does ANYONE out there have ANY suggestions?

continuing to search, in hopes I may have missed the one post with the info (though I've searched a bazillion thus far!)

Add this to ATO > Add HTML/CSS Inserts > CSS Inserts.

It should fix the problem:

div.post-bodycopy {
padding:10px !important;

How would I do this if I only wanted to change the text padding on one particular page?

you add 'body.page-ID-nn' to the beginning of the CSS selector to identify the page. Then 'nn' is the page ID
