Quick techie question

For any experts out there: I'm trying to greatly reduce the gap between my blog description and the first post, which is usually off the bottom of the screen. I've just spent half an hour playing with all the numbers in the template, or so it seems, without success. All help gratefully received!

The culprit is this part of the inline stylesheet in your template:

#description {
margin: 7em 7em;
max-width:400px;
font-size:120%;
line-height:1.8 em;
letter-spacing:.1em;
color:#789;
}

You want to go to your template, find this section in the <style>...</style> structure up at the head of the template, and change the first of the two measures under the "margin:" property (the size of the top and bottom margins) to something smaller. E.G.:

#description {
margin: 2em 7em;
max-width:400px;
font-size:120%;
line-height:1.8 em;
letter-spacing:.1em;
color:#789;
}

At least, I think that should do it. Does that work?

Thank you - it worked beautifully, and now I hope readers won't open the blog and wonder where the posts are.
