I am trying to bring an image down lower in a subsection but apparently it is not working.  I have a <div> followed by a sub <div> which is supposed to displace an image but it is not budging.  Any idea why?  I will show the code here of my CSS. and HTML code.  Thanks for your help ahead of time.

Here is the code that I am dealing with in the HTML file:

<div id="bottomHeader">                                    
                <div id="submenus">                                                        
                    <div id="submenu1">                    
                        <asp:HyperLink ID="submenuhyperlink1" ImageUrl="~/images/submenu1.jpg" NavigateUrl="" runat="server"></asp:HyperLink>
                    </div>                  
                </div>            
        </div>      

and here is the CSS I am dealing with in another file:

#bottomHeader {
text-align:center;
background-image:url('../images/prggroupsite_bottomheader.jpg');
height:150px;
}

#submenus {
height:105px;
width:990px;
border-color:Black;
margin-left:100px;
margin-top:10px;

}

#submenu1 {
height:98px;
width:318px;
margin-top:10px;

}

Why is the image not being displaced exactly where I want it to be?  Any solutions to this problem?  Please let me know.  Thanks!

Multiple options here. Here are a couple.

1) Add padding to the div wrapping the image

#submenu1{
    padding-top:20px;
}

2) Add this to give the image margin on top

#submenu1 img{
    margin-top:20px;
}

3) Move it with position:

#submenu1{
    position:relative;
    top:20px;
}


many other options

Well you have 3 (or more) possible options to use:

1) Replace margin-top under #submenu1 with padding-top
2) Completely remove #submenu1 and add padding-top:10px; to #submenus
3) Completely remove #submenu1 and add margin-top:10px; directly to your image element.

Any of these should work, but you should rarely have to use a sub-div just to add some space between elements.

Ok, I removed submenu1, added padding-top:20px and it didn't work.  I also added margin-top:20px; to the image and it did not work.  This is the frustrating thing that happens every so often with CSS when it doesn't respond to anything that you do.

Well, it seems to have worked. I will try the other two images to see how they will appear.
