Fluid with logo over another image

I'll be placing an image where the header currently is here and wanted the logo to still be positioned absolutely over it where it is now to the left, but to reduce with height:auto at fluid widths.

How would be the best way to do it? Do I need to give the image container a % width?  The middle banner is fluid, but for some reason I can't get the logo to reduce fluidly..

If someone could maybe check in an inspector? Any help appreciated.

You might want to start by validating the code and correcting the errors.  Several of the errors are serious including a duplicate id declaration and an unclosed tag.

Go to to validate the HTML, then run the CSS through the validator at

Once the error are corrected, the problems will become manageable, or may be gone.  With correct code we will be able to apply whatever properties we need to correct anything that is still wrong.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay; managed to fix it and yeah there were quite a few - I save the test template instead which was messy code, thanks for pointing it out.

I've actually changed it now so it's redundant, but thank you for taking the time to have a look, much appreciated.

Oh but the way to do it just make the logo width a percentage based on the parent div as normal, and set the height to auto again.  I hasn't set the width which is why it didn't work.
