Problems with layout in IE 7 [SOLVED]

EDIT: This issue has been solved. Mad props to marahmarie for helping me work through this mess!

Hello everyone. I have my journal designed just the way I want it. It looks fine in Firefox (which is what I use) but the header (I think) is shifting one pixel in IE7, so it doesn't line up with my background. Everything is one pixel off. Does anyone know what is causing this? When I fix it in IE, then it's one pixel off in Firefox, vice versa. The code is one I got from thefulcrum but I have heavily modified it, so there is no telling what I've done wrong. CSS code is under the cut.

#header {position: relative; margin-bottom: -300px; margin-left: 0px; width: 1094px; height: 600px; background: url( top center;}

- make sure that your height is the height of your graphic plus 40px
- e.g. if your graphic is 350px, your height should be 390px
