Hi.

I have a question about how to edit specific elements in a profile page.

Take this as an example;
http://www.teenspot.com/profiles/Mumfie

Scroll down and look at the box called "Specifics".
Lets say I want to edit "Location" from Norway to Sweden by using CSS. What is the procedure I should follow? If it's possible? It is possible to edit the CSS in a advanced page editor.

Should I search up the source for that page and do some modification by pasting a new code?

CSS's job is to style

CSS's job is to style content, not provide content, generally speaking. So for this page you would need to change the HTML code, not the CSS.

There are "hackish" ways to change this, through vanishing stuff and using background images, but if you're not skilled with CSS, it's probably more trouble than it's worth. There is also a "content" command, but it's not reliably supported across browsers.

What if I remove the content in that section and replace it by using the same html/css as before I deletet it but by editing the box I want to edit?
