<h1> always 100%? how to fix?
I have an <h1> tag in a div (#left to be exact) and I'm applying the "background" attribute to it. However, this background spans 100% of the div that it's in, when I really just want the background ONLY to wrap around the text, not 100%! How can I fix this?
I hope my question is clear. Let me know if you have any questions to further clarify myself.
Thanks in advanced!

Static element always expand to fill the width of the parents so effectively they will always stretch to 100% of the available width.
If you float the element without a width then it will shrink wrap its content.
You will then just remember to make sure that the very next element has clear:both applied so that it starts on a new line and doesn't wrap the float.
Of course once its floated you won't be able to easily center it.
