Hi Kyle,

You could add (if you haven't already) this code. It wipes the default margin and padding added to all elements -

* {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;

Be sure to put it at the top of your CSS. If you put it below other styles it might override styles that you later add and want to take effect.

There's a whole list of 'resets' here that some people choose to add to each project they do to get rid of default styles -


Hope that fixes it. If not, post your code and I'll be happy to have a look.
