You will find a Theme Settings Metabox on the post/page writing screen which allows you to override default display and other settings on a per-post or per-page basis, giving you fine-grained control over many of the page elements. (without having to resort to other more complex workarounds to achieve the same effect, such as one-column templates, hiding elements with styles and endless page-targeted CSS rules that clutter your stylesheets etc.) Note: Metabox overrides take priority over filtered theme settings. (ie. Settings -> Filtered -> Overrides)

Currently most override options in the metabox are for display (hiding elements) rather than output (removing them.) Inline CSS is added to a particular page to achieve this (more actual output overrides will be added at a later stage.)
[Display overrides are stored in post meta as an array with (hidden) meta key _displayoverrides.]
[Templating overrides are stored in post meta as an array with (hidden) meta key _templatingoverrides.]

PerPost Styles

You can add CSS style rules for a post/page through this metabox field. Handy if you need to tweak a specific post or page display. without having all these post-specific rules clogging up your global stylesheet and thus loaded sitewide on every page. These rules are checked for singular pages and output in the <head> section of the page on display automatically. There is also an expand/collapse link for better access to viewing and editing this stylesheet rules textarea.
[PerPost Styles are stored in the post meta with (hidden) meta key _perpoststyles]
