This is how it looks like with the changes applied:
http://vpodzime.fedorapeople.org/making_room_for_LI.png

I think the only problem is that the header has no gradient and only two
hard parts instead. Máirín, do you think the problem is in the code, or
does the PNG file have the same problem? (I did no change in that code,
just replaced the old header PNG with the new one, the size adapted
automatically).
