I will provide a link to the live site if someone can provide me a way to deliver it without having to post it for the world to see. In my header section there is already a background image. I want to try and position our logo in the top left of our header section. I've tried all the CSS tricks I know but I can't seem to make it work.

background-position:left top;

Am I correct in assuming you've created a header div and that you've positioned your image at absolute 0,0 but still can't get the result you need?

To protect your client, you may just want to provide a minimal page with images from the web to represent your layout and css.

I have tried those suggestions. I already have a background image and I am not sure if it's even possible to place another image that would overlap it. Here is a link to a temporary url

@jleecole: you have not set the background-position:left top; property

replace line 136 in template.css with
background-position:left top;

I've not done a very good job of explaining myself and I am sorry about that. I want to add an additional image, the companies logo in the top left corner. I had code in there before. The issue is that there is already a background-image. I am trying to place an additional image and leave the gradient background in place. Is there a way to do that with a background-image already in use for that div?

then you just have to put an img tag inside that header, with absolute positioning

img#smallLeftTopImage
{
  position:absolute;
  left:0px;
  top:0px;
  height:50px;
  width:50px;
  z-index:1000;
}

<img src="smallLeftTopImage.jpg" id="smallLeftTopImage"/>

If you look at the template now, you will see the image overlapping the flash header. I am trying to move it to the left of it. I feel like we are closer though!

I figured out where to stick the img. Thanks a lot man! Any recommendations on a book or any other materials to become a CSS guru?
