Question About Contant Area Design

I know how to use CSS, not a problem. But I’m having an issues using CSS to design my Content Area within a WordPress Blank Theme. Does anyone know of any examples on how to design and us CSS in respect to the Content Area…? Thank you…?

(width, margin and padding), things like that.

I am not totally sure what is your problem. However i assume that wordpress overrides your custom styles with default and you can’t make your page look like you want. So you might use longer DOM paths and !important arguments so it would display your page well.
Have i understood you well ?
