I have a banner and a repeating background image that I can't get lined up properly. I want the line you see under the banner to disappear and line up with the background exactly. The images do match...but the css won't. Appreciate any help: http://www.shop.lagedethe.com/main.sc

body {
	padding: 0px;
	margin: 0px;
	background-image: url(http://www.lagedethe.com/images/back.jpg);
	background-repeat: repeat;
	color: #AB731C;
	font-size: 14px;
}
.sf_header_wrapper {
	margin: 0px;
	padding: 0px;
	border-top-width: 0px;
	border-right-width: 0px;
	border-bottom-width: 0px;
	border-left-width: 0px;
	border-top-style: none;
	border-right-style: none;
	border-bottom-style: none;
	border-left-style: none;
}
 
.sf_main_header { background-image: url(http://www.lagedethe.com/images/banner.jpg);  height: 314px; width: 1038px; background-repeat: no-repeat; }
.float-wrap {
	width: 610px;
	float: right;
}
.sf_outer_wrapper {
	width: 1038px;
	background: url(http://www.lagedethe.com/images/repeat.jpg) repeat-y center;
	margin: 0px auto;
	height: 100%;
}
.sf_footer {
	border-top-style: none;
	margin-left: 200px;
	margin-top: 100px;
	padding-top: 200px;
	border-right-style: none;
	border-bottom-style: none;
	border-left-style: none;
}

I think the issue is that the banner and the background don't match.  You either need to edit the banner so that it matches the background or use a .png or .gif tranparently for the banner so that there isn't a line where the banner and the background meet.

The banner and background DO match as I have tested it in other sections without the CSS.

If you use the web developer toolbar and disable the stylesheet layout_contemp.css then the background DO match.  There must be some css in that stylesheet that is causing the issue.

OK it's this tag:

.center {
    float: right;
    width: 100%;
}

how do I adjust this so that it still floats but keeps the background aligned to the top?

Not sure at the moment.  If you nix the margin and padding and the center that part looks OK.  You might be able to figure it out on your own at this point.

Do you use Firefox and the Web Developer Toolbar and Firebug?

I am using all of these things and I cannot figure out how to override those elements. I cannot edit the original sheet, so I need to do in an override css file.

An alternative might be to position the background repeat.jpg image.  I think it is off my about 250px.  Needs to shoved down about that much.  Not sure where you have that in your code.

.sf_outer_wrapper {
background-image:url(http://www.lagedethe.com/images/repeat.jpg);
background-position:center bottom;
background-repeat:repeat-y;
height:100%;
margin:0 auto;
width:1038px;
}

Might need to reposition the background through this.
