If you don't already use Firefox, I would recommend using it and installing the firebug plugin. You can then use it to find the exact ID or Class of the element you need to modify and what line number it corresponds to in your .css file.

For example if you used firebug and found out that you the ID of the category widget you were using was #category-widget and the categories were being output as <li></li> list elements you could ad (or modify the existing code) something like:


#category-widget li {
margin: 0 0 10px 0;
}


If you post a link to your website or email me directly, I would be happy to help you further.

Looks like the you have a few css files. One of them is 1-default.css

Try adding the following to (on line 53) :


#main_navi_in ul li a {
Margin-right:20px;
font-size: 18px;

}



-----

Looks like the appropriate code is located on line 25 of your 1-default.css and looks like this:


#main_navi_in ul li a {
font-size: 12px;
margin-right: 50px;
}


Are you familiar with updating your CSS and do you know where to access this file?

in this file : /wp-content/themes/Emporium/skins/1-default.css
you must just replace

#main_navi_in ul li a {
font-size: 12px;
margin-right: 50px;
}


by

#main_navi_in ul li a {
font-size: 12px;
margin-right: 80px;
}


(80px or more or lesse, as you want)
if you want increase the font size, replace font-size:12px by another value, like font-size:16px
