Lining everything up at the top plus lightbox - all solved!

Hi, I'm a paid user, using Firefox 2.0 and Expressive. Like everyone else, I'm impressed by how huge a help this community is, and like everyone else, I've been able to do 90% of what I wanted through looking at the tags alone. Thank you!

My outstanding issues: I'm making my journal simulate a website. (The layout of this website, which is also a customised blog, is my inspiration.)

Solved! 1. I've made a "home page" simply by using a sticky and removing the title. But how do I get rid of the gaping chasm at the top?

On all the other "static" pages, if that's the right term (the entries I'm using as my "about", "contact" and so on):

Solved! 2. How do I remove the titles of those entries altogther, so that the body of the entry moves up in line with the sidebar? (If it helps, they're already set apart from other entries by all being dated pre-1985 so that I could remove the date/time.)

Solved! 3. I've been able to kill the prev/next link at the top of my "home" (recent entries) page with:

.stream-header .prevnext {display: none;}

But how do I kill it at the top (and only the top) of those static pages? (I'd be happy, if necessary, to lose it at the top of every page.) EDIT: This is what we've done, there isn't a way to remove it at the top of some posts and not others.)

Solved! 4. How do I remove the horizontal divider at the top of the sidebar, and how do I remove the title "LINKS", without removing any of the other sidebar headings?

Bad luck folks - this can't be done in LJ 5. One of my other websites has a template that came with a "lightbox" widget that makes images expand to a fancy full size view whilst the rest of the screen becomes shaded. Can such a thing be added to an lj, and if so, how?

Many thanks for your kind attention!
