Padding

Can anyone see where the 20px or so of padding/margin up above the header picture are coming from? I can't find it in my style sheet anywhere. I suspect I'm looking in the wrong place.

I have the exact same thing. I think it comes from taking of the blogger navbar thing. the space is still there even if the navigation bar isn't.
I have the exact same problem. If anyone comes up with a solution, please let me know!

Really nice design for a first design, Martin!

I took the page source code into Dreamweaver and deleted all the invisible junk on the top. Then I added "margin-top: -30px" to the body definitions. And ... lo and behold ... everything is peachy.

So, it worked on the page code. However, since the junk is generated by the Blogger system, you may not be able to delete it permanently. But it is worth a try.

Word verification: hilsc ... which I do: Hilsc to you! And good night, sleep tight.

I think it looks good, lots of amateurs use too little white space. You just got unexpected (and unwanted) help from the blogger system ;)

Still, I can see that it would fuck up some designs, so it's nice to be able to remove it when you want.

Sure, it's just that on some monitors very little of my text gets on the first page you get to, but that's okay, I guess.

Anon: hilsc yourself. Thanks for the tip.

Your 'body' element seems to have a padding of 40px. Since the 'header' element is contained within the body, and all positions are relative to the containing element (even absolute ones), removing the padding from the body should solve the problem.

I tried that, it doesn't work. But thanks for looking!
