The site's header is by default located at the top of the page. It contains the site's title, subtitle, search box, login status, and the top navigation bar. Because this <div> block contains so much vital information, the #header id is one of the most important ids on the page.

The site title is defined as an h1 tag and can thus be accessed with #header h1. The subtitle is a heading level lower than that and can similarly be accessed with #header h2.

The top bar is also located within the header. Manipulating this bar relative to the #container can therefore be tricky, but at the same time it allows for a unification between the edges of the top bar and the rest of the header for a more consistent look.


On this page, the site's subtitle is made red with the code below:

#header h2 span{    color: #E00; }
