I have modified everything about the CSS. I've tried putting a 0 amount on every sort of margin in every sort of section - and it changes nothing.
I opened my page in IE to see if it was different (which solved the issue I'm having with the gradient still showing up), but it still has a huge margin at the top.
I am a complete beginner with the lingo in this area, so please dumb it down for me. I'm tired of my google efforts coming up short.
The blog I need help with is piqueandco.com.
