Displaying a widget in the right position on a web page

I'm trying to change the way a widget from tripadvisor.com displays on my web page.

I don't know much about coding, but I've got the widget working using the supplied code thus:

<div id="TA_cdsratingsonlywide715" class="TA_cdsratingsonlywide"></div>
<script src="http://www.jscache.com/wejs?wtype=cdsratingsonlywide&uniq=715&locationId=7683847&lang=en_AU&border=true&shadow=true&display_version=2"></script>

This works fine, but the widget displays all the way over to the left & I'd like to see it a bit further to the right.

How do I position the widget?

Can you post more of the code around what you have shown above? Also can you screenshot how it currently looks and (if you can) show us where you want it to go?

You could try moving it with CSS:

#TA_cdsratingsonlywide715 {margin-left:25px;} should (in theory) more it 25 oixels to the right, but with third pary junk you never know what kind of mess they are making with their own classes and the scripting.  It is like the authors of widgets think they have a right to take control of any page that uses their trash.

COBOLdinosaur thanks for you input. I changed the first line of code as follows:

<div id="#TA_cdsratingsonlywide715{margin-left:25px;}" class="TA_cdsratingsonlywide"></div>

I may have misunderstood your suggestion, as it doesn't work, rather it breaks the widget which now displays "Please check the TripAdvisor code and install again"

Are you able to suggest what I've done wrong?

You should not be touching the widget at all.  As you can see it may be damaged if you do that.  you need to add the styling in you stylesheet with:
#TA_cdsratingsonlywide715 {margin-left:25px;}

It would be best if the stylesheet where you make the entry is the last one in head so it has greater potential to override what is being applied to the widget.  However ther is no guarantee that it will work because the scripting will override everything if it is also applying styles.

I ended up paying my web developer to do it. I didn't want to involve him for such a minor change but I couldn't get it to work.....

I really cannot see how he achieved it by looking at the code, but if you're curious, it's at www.phoenixeumundi.com.au
