You can redefine the (:noleft:) directive in your skin's skin.php
file. For instance:

## Markup (:noleft:) redefinition
function NoLeftBar() {
     global $HTMLStylesFmt, $PageLeftFmt;
     $HTMLStylesFmt[] = " #main { margin-left:0; width:100%; padding-right:0;}
          #sidebar { margin-left:-500px;} \n ";
     return '';
Markup('noleft','directives','/\\(:noleft:\\)/e', "NoLeftBar()");

Just use the appropriate div names etc in the $HTMLStylesFmt
declaration to set the left main page margin to zero.
