I have a page where the lines across the top do not line up. When I take out the doctype declaration and <html> tag it lines up. Can someone point me in the right direction?

The issue is that img elements are inline elements just as text content is inline. The default value for the vertical-align property of all img elements is baseline. This means that the img sits above the baseline of the text around it. Whether there is text before or after the image or not, there is descender space below the baseline.

There are two methods of eliminating the descender space below the image. One is to change the vertical-align property to a value of top or bottom. This would cause the image to be aligned to either the top of the text ascenders or the bottom of the text descenders; effectively moving the text baseline up and eliminating the extra space.
img { vertical-align: bottom; }

Open in new window

The second method is to change the image display property to block. Of course, this would only work if the image was placed independently, without any text before or after it.
#header a img { display: block; }

Open in new window

It is interesting that removing the doctype makes a difference. I suppose the default vertical-align property for img elements is different in different versions of HTML.

Allow me to commend you for writing HTML compliant code. The HTML validator returned no errors when evaluating your page.

The background image has a fixed position for the lines but your header doesn't have a fixed height to match the position of the lines.  It also looks like the default margins and padding of the header elements is pushing the navigation section down.
