Thank You Hans! That's close. But I see my description wasn't entirely
accurate. It's not just ONE page where I need to disable the SideBar, it's
any page named "EditMessages" regardless of Group. So, maybe I can create
just a PageName.css file with those changes? I'll go experiment.

> #content { width: 1150px; }    /*adjust main div width*/
> #wikitext { width: 1100px }  /*adjust wikitext div width*/
> #sidebar { display: none; }
> the reason you need to change the tmpl file is that such a page
