Solved [Help] HTML Page: Space between Header and top of page.

Post by T3CHNOCIDE on April 10th 2012, 4:39 am

Hello and thank you for visiting my problem thread,

I'm trying to use HTML and CSS to make a header so I can make a page from scratch. I'm new to CSS but am experienced with HTML. I have removed the spacing between the header and the left & right side of the page, however an infuriating space between the top of the page and my header remains, as shown here:



I am using the following code:

Code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>T3CH-Gaming - T3CH's Gaming Portfolio.</title>
   <style type="text/css">
body
{
height:100%;
width:100%;
background:url(http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/188598main_star_burst_galaxies_lg.jpg) no-repeat center center;
}
#curvedheader
{
background:url(http://i41.tinypic.com/k9dfdi.png) no-repeat center center;
height:100px;
width:2000px;
display:block;
position:absolute;
top:0;
left:0;
}
  </style>
</head>

<body>
   <div id="curvedheader" style="width:100%;">
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Any suggestions on how to approach this problem?

Thank you,


(If I do not reply instantly, it is probably because I have fallen asleep, but than you for contributing)

Hey Shuffler,

The site hasn't been published, it's brand new and is under construction. However, the problem I'm having is that there is a space between the top of my header and the top of my page, and I want the header to cover the top of the page; I fear using the <br/> tag will just increase that space.

Thanks,

Hey Bro,

Hey Again,

Yes, but that is the problem with the <br/> tag it spaces things out. What I'm facing, is the need to remove the space between the header and the top of the page; without a space, the header will touch the top of the page.

Thanks though,
