Why does IE not mover the header to the top?

Thanks.

The <header> tag is new in HTML 5. You will get inconsistent results across different browsers. I would place it in the area above the content where you want it to display on the page. I don't think that IE fully supports HTML 5 until IE 9 comes out, though each browser is adding new features all of the time.

If you're going to use HTML5 tags it helps to put this script in your head tags to get it to recognize the new tags like header, etc.

<!--[if IE]>
      <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/ie.css" type="text/css" /><![endif]-->
