Wondering if there is a way to override the Joomla temple CSS and create a inline CSS style for one article page. We have been working on a new page that just needs a little more space at the bottom before the Footer begins and I was wondering if anyone has been able to do this?

here is the page:

Again we are just looking to push the footer down a little bit for one page only with an inline style and keep the global template and CSS alone.

From the looks of your code you want this inline style for the footer on line 480:
<div class="footer" style="margin-top: 35px;">
The rest of the styles should still apply.

Also the internal style you have for the footer (repeated below) should be in the head tag. If it is placed after the external CSS link it will override the external file. If placed before the link the external file will override it.

<style>
    .footer {
    width:100%;
    height:140px;
    margin-top: 35px;
    background:url(../images/footer-bg.png) repeat-x bottom center;
    position: relative;
    z-index:500; }
</style>
