Can't Get A Gap Between Navigation and Content Areas[Resolved]

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm simply trying to induce a gap between my navigation area and my content area, like this website:http://www.thearteryfoundation.com/ But whenever I try adding padding or margin, my two div's seem to be attached at the hip. HTML:

#nav {	background-color: #000000;  /*  float: left; removed by dsonesuk, causes non float element/s below it to merge*/	overflow: hidden; /*added by dsonesuk, so nav can envelope floated child elements*/	padding: 0;   /* width: 100%; remove by dsonesuk, now not required with float removed*/}
