Why is my header reigion being pushed down

My header area/div with the banner is being pushed down about 10 pixels in this website .....  cocktailcornerband.com

When I created the layout with CSS I placed the header div at the beginning of wrapper div and it was correctly placed at the very top of the wrapper. However, somewhere in the design process this error occurred. I cannot see how this is happening.

All pages are produced from a template. I have enclosed the code for the template and 3 css files
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

.twoColFixLtHdr #sidebar1 { width: 230px; }

/* place css fixes for all versions of IE in this conditional comment */
.twoColFixLtHdr #sidebar1 { padding-top: 30px; }
.twoColFixLtHdr #mainContent { zoom: 1; }
/* the above proprietary zoom property gives IE the hasLayout it needs to avoid several bugs */

There is a <p> tag wrapped around the image in the header.  If you remove it, the space will go away.

<div id="header">
    <p><img src="../clipart/cocktail.gif" width="940" height="88" /></p>

Change main-layout.css line 20:


margin: 0;


margin-top: -15px;

Also, I would check into Firebug if I were you.  It's a plugin for Mozilla Firefox that allows you to modify css code directly in the browser so you can see that changes you need to make...

Inside your header, you have your image, which is wrapped inside a <p> tag.  Eliminate the <p> tags and see if that helps.
<div id="header">
    <img src="../clipart/cocktail.gif" width="940" height="88" />
