CD site looks different in Opera and Mozilla

The site I made (http://www.riserv.nl) validates as XHTML and in IE6 it shows OK but in Opera 7.52 there is this white border on the top of the headergraphic and in Mozilla 1.6 it is even wider.
The jpg is 700x100 pixels and in the CSS I entered 100px as the height so it should fit. Why is this, is it a bug/feature of IE6? Any ideas?

I have a similar effect on the menus on one of my sites. One Friday afternoon I'll get to it

A css problem not a citydesk problem per say. Add  margin: 0; to your #header h1 rule. The h1's margin is pushing the entire header down.

I find it's better to test first in Firefox/Mozilla then fix anything that breaks in IE.  Mozilla's renedering is more stringent if it works there it will work in most browsers.  I also recomend the excellent web developer toolbar for Firefox, it makes it much easier to track down problems like this.
