    I added a new header image as the background, but the tagline is over it. how can I adjust where the tagline goes? I'd like to push it down like 50px or so. also, while I'm here typing I'd like to ask where I can change the link colors. I do not want the default blue color or the hover color. thanks again everyone!

    Your tagline is controled by this section of your stylesheet:
    .description {
    font-size: 1.2em;
    text-align: center;
    }

    Add something like this margin: 50px 0px 0px 0px;
    In order thoses margins are top, right side, bottom, left side.

    Your hover and link color is in this section:

    a, h2 a:hover, h3 a:hover {
    color: #06c;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    a:hover {
    color: #147;
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    Ah, I ran into a problem when adding a margin for the tagline. right now I have a bg image in my header. and when I added a top margin for the tagline, it lowered the line, but it also lowered my bg image. is there a way to only change the tagline?

    can someone help me out with the post above? its moving the entire header image instead of just the tagline.

    Add a margin to .description, and yes, it pushes everything down.

    To counter that, add the same margin - but a negative one - here:
    #headerimg {
    margin-top: -50px;

    I can't be more precise as the webdev tool I use blanks most of your page, but make that change and we'll go from there.

    that doesn't seem to be working. I added the margins jsut as you explained, but tagline is still at the top, instead of 67px margin, which is what I need. sorry if I'm being stupid here, but I've been reading over the css for so long and I still can't figure it out.

    It's not you - the underlying css is being obtuse, and the fact that as son as I open the webdev bar everything goes white does not help. It is as annoying here.

    Unless someone comes along who likes this css, I'd suggest:
    - make the tagline part of the graphic
    - create a completely separate horizontal bar for the tagline.
