Please see the  attached file and code snippet below, one is a CSS file the other is a HTML file.

Please can you tell me how I can edit the CSS file so that the div 'Navigation' sits 1em below the header and 1 em above the Column1 and Column2 divs.

I also need to know how to edit the CSS file so that when the navigation list items (which are links) are clicked upon and the user is taken to the new page the navigation list item they just clicked on now displays as a different color to the other navigation list item links and different to the hover state.

Many thanks.

Use margin-top: 1em and margin-bottom: 1em for the navigation div

#body-container #navigation {
      width: 100%;       height: 3em;       background-color: #F00;       display: block;
margin: 1em 0 1em 0;
}  

For the second query
#navigation-items a.visited {
      color: #ff0000;
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
