CSS Question

HTML/CSS--Creating a banner/header

I've got a horizontal image as a GIF and JPG. It is something I made with Paint--a text logo with an image on a solid background.

I am having a lot of trouble trying to get it to display as a banner/header.

So far, I am only able to get the solid background to show up. The text/logo mysteriously disappears. The solid background extends to the full screen over my background image, and I want that, but obviously, with my text/logo showing up.

This is the code I am using:

body {
background: url("mybackgroundimage.gif") repeat;
#banner {
position: absolute;
top: 0px;
left: 0px;
right: 0px;
width: 100%;
height: 200px;
z-index: -1;
<img id="banner" src="mybannerimage.gif" alt="Banner Image"/>

I think there may be something wrong with my image. I tried this using a different image, and it worked, but my text was stretched.

How do I create a banner with a logo that doesn't stretch when I use this code??

Answer Source

You have a type-o:

its: height: 200x;

and it should be: height: 200px; also check the image url; it should be in the same directory it seems.

Also, dont use 'px' at null (aka '0') values. 0px, 0em, 0% is still 0. :)

top: 0px;

is the same with:

top: 0;

Good Luck!
