Default Can't find similar html tags in other themes

Hi-I've been working through the book as I build my first WordPress site. I wanted to add my logo to my site, I'm using the theme: "jQ 3.1" by Devolux, but I can't find similar html code as used in the example (Lesson 27). After awhile I gave up. But I'm finding similar problems identifying the same or similar html as the starting point in other examples further on in the book that require changing the CSS. I'm a newbee as far as html goes, but I think I'm familiar enough with html to match the examples in the book with what "jQ 3.1" by Devolux displays in the html screens.

Any suggestions?

Ray, it looks to me like the jQ theme use text for where a logo would normally go.

The simplest way to put a logo in there would be to open up the header.php template file and find:

<div id="blog-line">
<!-- blog title and tag line -->
<h1><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a> | <?php bloginfo('description'); ?></h1>
and replace it with something like:

<div id="blog-line">
<!-- blog title and tag line -->
<a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><img src="/mylogo.png" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>" /></a> 
You will have to modify the CSS to get the spacing right. Also note, that there are other (better) ways of doing this so that printing the page works better. But this is an easy way to get you going.
