insert point in content block

Kinda strange - maybe not.  I can't seem to set the insertion point for a slide show that I'm putting in the white <article> area (where you see 'ddd').  I want the margin for that space set to 0.

Can you please advise how to set those inner margins to 0?

    That is not a margin problem. it is padding from this rule:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p {
    	margin-top: 0;	 /* removing the top margin gets around an issue where margins can escape from their containing block. The remaining bottom margin will hold it away from any elements that follow. */
    	padding-right: 15px;
    	padding-left: 15px;
    	font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    Open in new window

    Remove the left-padding and it will do what you want it to do.
