    Just increase #content padding from 10px to a higher value (with 30px I think will look decent).
    You will find #content {} on line 48 at /includes/themes/mds_light/css/main.css .

    "box that surrounds" seems a bit vague, but from a layout perspective it reeks of "WCAG, what's that?" and on the whole is not what I would call "viable for web deployment" on accessibility grounds. The inaccessible fixed width layout, inaccessible PX metric fonts declared on body, broken/gibberish use of numbered headings resulting in broken heading navigation... and that's without even looking under the hood with the endless pointless DIV for nothing, Bootcrap pissing all over the markup and bloating out the page (made outright laughable to use bootcrap and still have no responsive or fluid design), jQuery bloat for NOTHING of value (not that jQ usually does anything but walk through a pile and track it all over any site it is applied to)... It's a laundry list of how not to build a website if you want people to actually visit it and use it.

    As evident by the ridiculously massive 840k in 24 files to deliver 360 BYTES of plaintext and no content images... anywhere from 50 to 100 times what it should be in total sizes and six times the file count...

    Made even worse by the complete lack of graceful degradation -- since if you can't make a page that things like the form aren't workable scripting off/blocked, you probably shouldn't be adding scripting in the first place. You've got a lot of "gee ain't it neat" scripttardery in there (like the login dropdown) that really is the type of nonsense that has no business on a website in the first place -- and even if it did, you should be making a real form and real submit and then enhance it with the javascript, instead of not even having a proper form or submit.

    I'd be tossing that out to start over from scratch, there is little if anything I'd try to salvage from that code-wise.
