How can I make the edge of the div inline with the black border on the images above and have 5px of padding from it?
I already tried adding padding to the right side, it just seems to shift the whole page over?

Well the 'width' property actually specifies the width of the content. The true width of the entire div will be..
'margin-left' + 'border-left-width' + 'padding-left' + 'width' + 'padding-right' + 'border-right-width' + 'margin-right'
Hope that helps
Use the formula I gave you to work out its proper size.
<img "yourpic.gif" width="200" height="10">
to get the right border of 'yourdiv' to appear in line with the right border of the image, and with a 35px left margin, you could use this..
margin: 5px 0 0 35px;
border: 1px solid red;
Becuase you want the left border to appear at 200pixels.
So you need..
35 + 1 + 5 + width + 5 + 1 = 200;
