Hi,

Up until now I have been using wysiwyg editors to work on my website and they have really mangled the code. I am trying to get the text from my main container to begin at the top of the page but it seems to start 10-30 cm down the page. When I used wysiwyg editors I often had this problem and it could always be solved by adding lots of breaks at the end of my text (or lots more text) but now that's not even working. I would really appreciate it if someone could have a quick scan of the code for my page and see if they can pick out anything that's wrong..

Hi iamthwee,

Thankyou for your help, unfortunately the end result was that my banner was halved in height and the text stubornly didn't move.

But I do appreciate your having a look, I can't fathom it at all.
