I’ve recently had to change cart providers and decided to use Magento. Currently moving things over but I’ve come up against a problem that I would like help with.

In the Expanded version of a product I’ve replaced the Short Description with the Description for 2 reasons;-
1/. If I have already persauded the prospect to look deaper into the product I can see no benefit in repeating what he has already seen and accepted.
2/. I need an explanation of how to use the format and that must go on the top, You cannot expect the prospect to scroll to the bottom to find the description- scroll back to the top to begin the process.

Currently the Description is confined into the right column where the Short Description went creating a very UGLY blank space.

A sample page may be seen on this development page.
