O/T div.fieldWithErrors styling

this is kinda trivial but I'm anal and it bugs me :slight_smile:

whenever there's a error in the form the error field is wrapped with

<div class="fieldWithErrors"> </div>

this throws my form's styling off because it puts too much space b/t
fields and worse makes the form as wide as possible. How do I fix
this? I've tried

div.fieldWithErrors {
margin:0; padding: 0; display: inline;
}

to no avail. Yes I am selecting the div correctly b/c I can see the
result when I set background to red

Is it possible you have another style the problematic div is inheriting from?
