One more problem... - SOLVED

Just when I think I have everything solved, I find another issue.

I'm trying to fix my blockquote coding from the usual Carson Red blockquote set-up to something more sleek. I'm just looking for a centered text area with a 2px dashed border (color #B40404) and a tinted background (color #E6E6E6). I've looked at the original CSS and tried to tweak it on my own, but when I start the blockquote after the first few sentences, there's still blockquote text hanging underneath the userpic.

The only code I added is the one to remove the pre-coded background image (red horizontal dashes going down the left side the whole length of the blockquote).

Please help! If anyone needs a visual of what I'm asking for, please let me know.

SOLUTION (as of 11/23/10)

I'm not sure if this will work for EVERY Expressive or Mixit layout, but this is the code I used.

blockquote {
    margin-left: 5px;
    background-img: none;
    padding: 5px;
    margin: 5px 105px;
    border: 2px dashed #81BEF7;
    text-align: center;

.asset-content blockquote {
    background-image: none;
    padding-left: 5px;

This is how I got it to look exactly as it does in my journal, which is what I was looking for. I had to sift through the original CSS coding for the layout as LiveJournal has it set up, but I found what I needed to correct. I highly recommend some kind of Web Developer tool through Firefox if you want to do this on your own.
