Formating issue after uploading custom theme (3 posts)

    Check out my site: http://dazestate.com/, you should immediately see my problem. I developed a custom theme (actually just spliced together Imbalance and Autofocus) with Dreamweaver on a local test server. The theme works fine on my localhost connection, but as you can see, it doesn't on my dazestate domain. The only problem is that the first post preview is being placed over my header instead of in line with the others - everything else is functioning the same. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this misplacement? I've been trying everything but can't figure out what's wrong. Please let me know, thanks

    Start by sorting out the markup errors. Then move onto the CSS errors.

    Thanks for the response. I'm a bit confused though - I got rid of most of the CSS errors, but they didn't look like errors. Some of that css stuff was pretty important (like the opacity definitions which I left in), and it all came from the demo of a premium theme. Should I really delete all that stuff? Also, I was able to track down a few markup errors, but I am completely unable to find/fix most of them - the second error on the list is not even in my code, I don't have any refernces to "h2" in any of my php files. And again, all of this code came from premium/professional quality themes which function fine when used by themselves. All I need to do is change the placement of the first post on the homepage. Is fixing all the other stuff really necessary?
