1. I'm assuming that you *don't* have a good reason to use XHTML, since
you are serving the page as text/html. Get rid of XHTML and use HTML.
You also have errors for XHTML 1.0 ( also see Appendix "C") requirements.

3. I don't fully understand what you think your problem is, but if I
change #header to height:288px then it is tiled vertically. This is
because in your Quirks Mode your padding of 20px (all 4 sides) for
#header is what is causing this. Remove this from your dkblue.css when
in Quirks Mode.

3. I'm assuming that you are creating a *new* page and therefore you
should *not* be using a Transitional Doctype (you are requesting Quirks
Mode response from all browsers viewing the page). Use Standards
Compliant Mode (Strict Doctype) like so: <!doctype html>

See the difference when you change the stylesheet changes below by
changing content-box to border-box and padding-box . To see the
affect add/change the padding/border settings to #header . The 20px
padding for #header in your dkblue.css will increase the image size
per the box model beyond the overlaying text if using padding-box .

4. Try out these (see for
support (for IE9+ only)) for *flexible layout* (for the #header portion
only with random values chosen). Replace the former in your embedded
styles and add the latter, which will override/replace the one in
dkblue.css :

#header { /*height: 200px;*/ margin-top: 20px; margin-bottom: 20px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: 100% 100%;
background-origin: content-box;
/* border-box retains box size with image under the
border to the outer border edge whereas padding-box
will increase the box size with padding increase and
also the image size. */
#container {max-width:1020px; min-width:500px; width:auto; margin:0 7%; }

I still don't understand what you mean by "wrong size".

With the height of #header set to 200px, a bottom portion of the
background image is clipped. The height for #header, if set to 288px,
will show the full height of the image, but due to the 20px padding for
#header will show a portion of the next tiled image below it. By
removing the 20px padding *or* by changing the height of #header to
240px, the single full height of the image is shown.

You are using a background image and the width of #header is not wide
enough for the image, therefore it is clipped on the right side. Use the
1150px width of the background image for #header instead of 1020px,
*or* use background-size *or* use an image rather than a background
image with "fit-to-size".
