Help with LiveJournal CSS correction? (fixed)

So my friend suckered me into reviving my LiveJournal account as a dream journal, which led to me shopping around for pretty layouts to use. I'd like to use this one, but for some reason the header image and the body of the journal do not align exactly in the live preview or in my own journal (oddly enough, the two are aligned perfectly in the image preview). I know it's only a mere pixel off, but it drives me nuts every time I look at it. Is this due to a flaw in the CSS? I'd correct it myself if I could, but alas, I cannot, so I am reaching out for help here. <3

CSS code:
Image Preview:
Live Preview:

I'd ask the creator myself, but questions on the layout are apparently disabled for the moment.

I'm so sorry about Bella, Jack.


I took a look, but can't figure out an obvious/simple solution. I think you'd have to rework it, so the header actually gets set as an image, and not a background-image for the div. Then you could just fix the CSS on that.


That's what I thought it would boil down to; I'll just dig up some tutorials later and see if I can figure it out. Thanks a bunch for trying! (:

Edit: Yay, got it! Hurray for trial and error.
