    Eyebeat the Idiot is back.

    I'm having trouble centering the graphic at the top of my blog. I've never worked with CSS before so be patient. I've been trying to follow the tutorial here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/graphicalcss/. Most things have worked exactly as described but positioning the graphic is proving difficult and confusing for me. Any help would be appreciated.

    It looks centered to me. I'm using IE6, I believe. What's to be embarrassed about? I love your header. It's funny;-)

    try this:

    #header {
    background-image: url(myimages/eurohead.gif);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    border: solid 0px #000;
    height: 400px;
    width: 800px;
    clear: both;
    margin: auto;
    }

    Jerm,
    Why the addition of clear: both;?

    background: url(myimages/eurohead.gif) no-repeat center top;

    should do the trick.

    Tg,

    That looks intuitive enough even for me to understand,

    thanks

    Not sure if that was sarcasm or real. Hard to tell sometimes when you can't hear the tone.
