Styling CSS Elements in a pre-made Form

I asked this question yesterday, but I don't think I phrased it correctly.

I have a form at http://azwm.com/arizona-mortgage-application/

VERY IMPORTANT: I do not have access to the form code or the HTML. All I can do is manipulate the style sheet. In order to manipulate the style sheet, I need to "view source" to try and figure out which element I should target.

I am trying to position the progress bar flush against the top of the form. I think I should / can move it around using this:

body  #gform_wrapper_3 .gform_body .gfield_html .gfield_no_follows_desc
          {
      padding-top:0px;
      margin-top:-10px !important;
      position:relative;
      top:0px;
      left:0px;        
          }

However, I can't make it flush against the top of the form. Or at least, I can't figure it out.

Also, I want to position the CONTINUE button. I think I should be doing something like this:

body #gform_wrapper_3 .gform_body .gform_footer .gform_next_button_3

      {      
            position:relative;             
            left:50px;
            padding-left:50px;
         }

But that doesn't do anything at all.

I will post all of the code here. I am sorry that it is so messy. I'll fix it later, when I learn what the heck I am doing.

Thank you in advance!

I just want the button that says "continue" to be lined up with the form labels and input boxes.

So... I want the continue button (which is an image) to be styled 50px from the left.

And I want the progress bar to stay right where it's at, from the left, but moved up about 10 pixels so that it is flush with the top of the form.

Thanks!

I think it might be over-defining the CSS declaration and that's why it doesn't work as you expected.  Try adding a simpler declaration:

.gform_image_button {
    margin-left: 50px;
}

Create this rule for "continue":
#gform_next_button_3_47 {
    margin-left: 40px;
}

and remove this one:
.gform_wrapper .gfield_html.gfield_no_follows_desc {
    margin-top: 10px;
}
from: forms.....RC3.10 (line 339)

Thank you! That fixed the continue button, which is great...

http://azwm.com/arizona-mortgage-application/

But I still can't get the "progress bar" or "steps" to be flush against the top of the form. That hasn't moved. I need to specifically style the progress bar. It will be something like:

#gform ??? field_3_50

I am so confused!

Thank you again.

Ok. add this rule
#field_3_50 { margin-top: 0;}

Try to add it somewhere at the end of .css file, to make sure that it will overlap previous rule.
