CSS: Adjusting header size

How do I adjust the header size to fit n any screen resolution?

This is the website: http://nelsonnaibert.com.br/

Hope you can helo me.

Thanks a lot!

Even on small screens, the header link is still set to:

.header-title {
display: block;
[COLOR="#FF0000"]width: 997px;[/COLOR]
height: 400px;
background: url(http://nelsonnaibert.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/NNaibert_Header9.gif) no-repeat 0 0;
text-indent: -9999em;
margin: 0 auto;

and you still have that big background image. You could switch to a different image, or change its size with background-size, although that’s a new property that doesn’t work on older browsers.

Thanks again for your help, Ralph. As you can see, I’m a begginer and I’m having some trouble with this header. When I replace width in pixels for 90%, there’s no way to align header and menu n the center of the page and, as you’ve mentioned, I still have the big background image.

Since the beggining, I wanted to have the white background associated to the main column and not as a background image, but didn’t know how to do that. Is that really a solution? If so, how can it do that?

Finally I could solve the background issue, but still having trouble with the header image. Which would be the correct setting?


You can use a different background image at each break point, sized to fit, and serve it up via @media rules.
