I am assisting a friend in making changes in a css . He needs to replace the existing form code in a css with new code from a different vendor, but maintain the current layout and graphics. We are both novices and have been unable to maintain the formatting when integrating the new code.

All involved code is below:

Code for the existing layout:

#optin_area { background: #6d6e71 url(http://www.ginalamorte.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/optin_area.png) repeat-x top; padding: 20px 0 20px; _height: 1% }
 #optin_area:after { clear: both; content: "."; display: block; font-size: 0; height: 0; visibility: hidden }
 #optin_area .page { margin: 0 auto; position: relative; width: 847px }
 #optin_area h3 {
  background: url(http://www.ginalamorte.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/tag-line.png);
   float: left;
   height: 30px;
  margin: 10px 10px 0 0; 
         text-indent: -9999px;
  width: 416px;

 }


 #imgTagline {
 position: absolute; z-index:2;
 top: 16px; left: 130px;
 }




#field_FirstName {
 position: absolute; z-index:20;
 top: 5px; left: 500px;
 }

#field_Email {
 position: absolute; z-index:20;
 top: 5px; left: 670px;
 }

.submitbutton {
 background: transparent url(http://www.ginalamorte.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/sign-up2.png) center 0px no-repeat;
 border: 0px solid #FFFFFF;
 display: block;
 text-indent: -9999px;
 height: 73px; width: 74px;
 padding: 0;
 position: absolute; z-index:30;
 top: -12px; left: 845px;
 }
  

.submitbutton:hover {
background-position: 0px -73px !important;
background: transparent url(http://www.ginalamorte.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/sign-up2.png) center 0px no-repeat !important;
}
  

.submitbutton:hover { background-position: 0px -73px; }

Not going to happen.  The badly written and semantically horrible new markup does not use a structure or even the same elements as the old code.  You are not going to get the new form to look like the old form.

Throw away the old CSS and then style the new markup to get a look you like for the new layout.
