My site isn't up yet but here is the code in the red css stylesheet for the background of the header (first line).
background: #911C1E url(red/images/bg.gif) repeat-x;
font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
margin: 0px auto 0px;
bg.gif is no actually an image but a reddish color that fills under the website name and slogan on the header. When you insert an image in the line above color: #202020 the image is displayed to the far left at the top of the screen and the color of the background changes. I'm trying to get the image more centered with the website name and also maintain the same redish color. Thank you very much.
