In this website: http://www.temp.artandsoulacting.com , there is a white space above the menu and below the banner. Only in Internet Explorer ( what else). Is it possible to remove this space and have the banner flush against the menu like in the other browsers?

I have not tested it but there's a strong possibility that it has something to do with your h1 tag. You have soo much stuff in it which is not correct. A h1 tag (Header tag) is used for a title only, not for html content. I suspect taking it all out of the header tag will fix the issue.

HHm, that didn't really fix it.

Can you put it online so I can see? The current source still has image and menu tags inside it..

I feel like we are looking at different pieces of code. What I am looking at is
#header h1 {

In that case we are. I was refering to the HTML. h1 tag's inner code should just be text.

I wasn't able to use the solution because the template I am using had vital code in header tag, but it's fine. I told the client it wasn't possible.
