how can i make the image i made fit in the banner space?

also, i made that image in photoshop using a color of #666 666. i tried to match that background color using the same shade of gray but they obviously don't match. where should i be putting in the color in dreamweaver.

the header is set to 100% so you are stuck with the image at what ever size it is. In this case <img src="Havasuapaihikeheader.jpg" width="800" height="102" />
if you want to hav it at full width of the header you will have to use a fixed width page.
as for the colour you have 666666 this should be #666666

what the disadvantage with the fixed width page?


also, on the color, everywhere i am looking, i see it set to #666666,( i posted a pic below). is there someone else i should be looking?

THanks

sorry looked again and the 666666 is in an archaic ie5 fix.
i checked the colour of your image an it reads #424242 .
its not a question of advantage or disadvantage but of what you want to do with your page .
as it is your image looks very odd
also delete
<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> from your page above the doc type

where you have this
.twoColElsLtHdr #container {
width: 46em; /* this width will create a container that will fit in an 800px browser window if text is left at browser default font sizes */
try
width: 800px;

edbr,
you were right about the color. my bad. got it fixed.

could you take another looks and see how it looks on your end? also is there a way to see how a page will look on different sized monitors?

check if you can alter the monitor settings in windows, right click on your desktop>properties>settings.
this can give you resolution diffences but best to ask the friends network in the end
