Specify a height for whatever element that background image was in, 
(the .header class?) at a different computer now, so can't access your 
example, but that should do it. Of course anything else that you had below 
that was dependent on the height of the element preceeding will need 
adjustment too.

Any time things aren't working, check your float clearance, heights, widths, 
and line-heights. Also, I've found that using the transitional doctype gives 
you more problems to overcome (quirks mode for example), use xhtml strict for 
better cross-browser niceness.
