Design Hiccups

So obviously there's a new look happening around here. It's giving me some trouble. It looked perfect when I previewed it, but then when I published it, everything moved up despite various paddings/margins. So I checked it in Shiira and Safari and everything is in the right place - except for the title image, which mysteriously doesn't show up at all. It's pissing me off and I need to fix it, but I can't for the life of me get things to stick where they're supposed to.

I've been working on this for like 3 1/2 hours. I'm going to bed. But rest assured that sometime tomorrow everything should (hopefully) get straightened out. Any ideas as to how I could go about that would be much appreciated, if any of you guys are into this sort of thing.

Edited: Or maybe it's working. I can't tell. It's being really spastic. Anyway, I'll have a real post tomorrow regardless.

you have
height: 100px;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
background: url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v356/superlemon/blog%20redesign/titleimage.jpg) center no-repeat;
align: center;
for the header, which isn't w3c and will make some browsers hiccup - try adding a position value (i think given blogger, you might use absolute or relative - hard to say, play around with it) and define the div width as 100%
also helpful is to make a background image that is like 1600px wide, and actually insert your title image - centering a div doesn't alwas work in non standards browsers.
it looks ok right now though in firefox and konquerer, i can run it through browser cam at work if you want

I have no idea how to help you. I was just looking to see more food porn and came across your new look. I like the color scheme, but have no idea about anything else. I see your photo at the bottom of the comments, as well as the about me and previous posts.

i think it looks great! I really like it!

jessica - Thanks! I think I fixed most of the issues... I'm still having trouble getting the text to format the way I want it, though. The right-side stuff and the comments. It's so frustrating. I haven't done any web design in a looooong time, so my skillz are rather rusty.

leslie - That's weird about seeing the photo where it doesn't belong. It don't see it. Huh.

jenny - Thanks! :)

pretty! i lurve the banner. everything about it is perfect.

Thank you! :)
