I am providing a link to a test site I am working on. I am trying to learn CSS the best I can as it is a very much needed necessity these days. I would very much appreciate any help with my layout.

I am experiencing mixed results on multiple browsers and computers. Can anyone provide incite as to a more effective way to display my header and wrapper so that my design will remain consistent across multiple browsers. ( IE is giving me a major headache.)

My CSS:

z-index:0;
