    HELP - Problem editing a macromedia tutorial

    Ive found a tutorial by those nice ppl at macromedia here. However when i place another <div> inside their wrapper then edit padding, the padding doesnt seem to be working.

    What can i do to get a working template so I can add content inside?

    Here is the xhtml code from the tutorial

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
      <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
      <head>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
      <title>Untitled Document</title>
      
      <link href="CssFiles/shadow.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
      </head>
      
      <body>
      <div id="wrapper">
      
      		<div id="content">
      		blah blah blah how big is the padding
      		</div>
      		
      </div>
      </body>
      </html>
    And here is the CSS code from the tutorial

    HTML Code:
    /* CSS Document */
      
      body {
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      text-align: center; /* hack to force IE5.x pc to center our wrapper div */
      background-image: url(../images/body_bg.gif);
      }
      
      #wrapper {
      margin: 0 auto;
      background-image: url(../images/wrapper_bg.gif);
      background-repeat: repeat-y;
      text-align: left; /* re-align the text to the left after the above hack */
      width: 770px;
      }
      
      #content {
      padding: 100;
      }

    Plain 100 won't do, you need to use units. Px is probably what you're looking for. (padding: 100px)
