Modify page layout (Search button)

Please let me know if it is possible to modify the page layout so that i can reduce the gap between the search button and the bottom of the white background that surrounds it.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

Well first, to get the whole thing closer you would add more pixels to the margin

.search_bg { float: right; margin-top: 18px; margin-left: 10px; }

to maybe like

.search_bg { float: right; margin-top: 25px; margin-left: 10px; }

Well, I don't want the size of the search button and textboxes to change.. .
reducing just the white background is sufficient
