    this is my basic container:

    #container {
    width:940px;
    }
    #header {

    width: 940px;
    height: 88px;

    }
    #LeftNav {
    float:left
    width: 235px;



    #body {
    width:705px;



    }
    #footer {
    clear:both;

    }

    I was told to make sure my body and left nav add up to the width to ensure they sit next to each other correctly, but when i open the site in a browser, and when i look at it in sharepoint designer, my body isn't the same width as the header, and there's a blank white space, and to the left of the nav where the body has dropped down more than the left nav's height there's also a ugly white space.

    Why is this, how do I solve it? Please help me.

    sharepoint 2007 or 2010?

    I've found with sharepoint sometimes css just won't take, unless you tag it with !important
