OK, let me first start by saying I'm NEW to ASP.net, so I hope this question doesn't sound stupid!

I have a DIV inside a Content Place Holder so I can change the width and background color to something different from the Master Page.
Here is an example of what it looks like now:
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder" Runat="Server">
    <div style="width: 1000px; background-color:White">

I would like to move these settings to a CSS file instead of having them set in the form, so I can swap out files at will.  I would like the CSS file to contain my width: 1000px and background-color:White so I can change these files in out based on a report selected.

You see I have a Crystal Report Viewer inside a Content Place Holder and I would like to change the width of the DIV when the report is Landscape vs. Portrait, so that the report shows behide a White Background vs. a green background on the Master Page.

Thanks,
Mark

<div class="fakefile">

one way would be to create a class in your css file and then set <div class="mycalss">

another way would be giving your div an id :

<div id="mydiv">

and then in your css file using div id to set the properties

you could also use jquery:

$("#myDiv").addClass('myClass');
