    probably simple header background issue..

    I can't figure out why this is happening.. please someone give me a hint!

    for some reason the header is stretching up to cover the nav div, and i can't for the life of me think why...
    thanks!

    Hi, I went to your page and tried to find out the problem, but in Opera and FF the hehader isn't covering up teh nav, and no <br>'s are in the #right column, nor in the #header.

    hey.. it wasn't visible for a while bc after i fixed it i removed the test posts i'd put in to make the nav things would show up (only shows next/previous if there is a next previous)... but now there's a second post anyway.
    the weirdness was only on the single post view, but basically there was a nav div and then an h2 and the h2 background was extending up over the nav div and even a little higher. it basically seemed linked to the top of the content div. but as i thought divs were block elements, shouldn't it have started a new line automatically? putting the break in made it behave how i'd expect it to normally.

    Hmm are they floated? The h2s?

    Try instead the break, overflow:hidden; on the parent (assuming they are floated)

    Your description made it seem like they are floated, and once floated they go on the same line (assuming there is enough width)

    well the nav links above the h2 are floated, but not the h2 itself. what happened was they don't go on the same line... the next/previous links were still above the header, but the header's bg color extended up over the next/previous links..
