Hi there, I'm a CSS newbie (sorry). I've thumbed through the community tags for help on my specific issue - hopefully, you guys can clear a couple of things up.

I am using Expressive's Endless Summer Brown layout with Firefox 3.0.10. I used bits of code from this community first to install a custom header, and then to move the default header text/links down below the image. My issue now is that the sidebar and the most recent entry overlap with said header text/links. If I had to take an educated guess, I'd say it was a cellpadding issue, but I'm really not sure.

Here is what is currently in my Custom CSS box:

#header-inner {
background-image: url("http://i43.tinypic.com/xqdst2.png");
height: 256px;
#header {
background-image: none;

#header-text {position: absolute; top: 256px; width: 100%; max-width: 960px; margin: 0px auto;}

Thank you in advance! (Also, sorry for the Star Wars nerdiness. :))

Edit: I also just noticed that there is an extraneous link to my profile that, er, wasn't there before. I imagine it is due to overlapping code - any help with fixing that is also appreciated.

Edit: I ended up deleting the second bit of code and using the following instead:

#header-content-inner {
margin: 250px 1px 1px 1px;

I also extended the header image's white-space a little, and that seemed to do the trick. On the other hand, it looks awful in Internet Explorer. Grr, argh.

So, is this resolved, or...?

It doesn't really do the trick with IE, but other than that, I am satisfied. :)

Well, it looks like your header image is 375px tall, but you're only specifying a height in #header-inner{} of 335px. You could try increasing the height to 375px and adjusting the margins on #header-content-inner{}.
If it still looks weird in IE, try adding this:
#header-content { margin-top: 0;}
