PNG clear overlay problems

Hello all!


I am VERY new to CS5.5 and just learning my way around.  I've managed to create a test site for a new food festival:


I've puzzled for a couple of hours as to how to get the "free admission" image in the upper right hand corner to become a clear overlay so that it doesn't push the header/main title to the left or have the little dotted line running through it.


Please help me!

    First, validate your code & fix reported errors.


    Don't use spaces in folder and filenames.  If you need separation between words, use _ underscores or - hyphens.


    Align attribute is obsolete in HTML5.  Learn to create re-usable CSS classes.


    Finally, when I mouse over the heading Aksarben Ribfest in my browser, it goes completely spastic.  Yikes!

    Sorry you feel my answer was irrelevant.  But you need to solve the primary code issues first.  Then we can deal directly with your layout question.

    As Nancy pointed out, you are building your page on a foundation of sand (shifting and unstable).

    Without a proper foundation (valid code), we can't fix your problem. That's the starting point.

    So if you already know how to resolve your problem on your own, GREAT... if not, then you might want to listen to advice offered as a solution.

    We offer help here free of charge, but it's your responsibility to to your part. And if the advise is first validate the page... then.... well you know where I'm going with this.

    Best wishes,

    Didn't I mention that I am VERY new to all of this?

    Without a working knowledge of code basics, DW will continue to frustrate & punish you.
