Hi Rushino,

The height of the header is determined by this CSS selector:

#Header a
  The #Header a is nested in the #Header. It provides a link to the homepage,
  and sets the header image background.
  background-image: url(Images/Header.jpg);
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  width: 944px;
  height: 138px;
  display: block; 
You find this code in DarkGrey.css that you added in step 9 on page 222. For the header to get its size, you need an <a /> element in the #Header div. You added this anchor element earlier. The code example of step 6 on page 204 shows you how it should look like.

Hope this helps,
