I’m a non-techie wanting to alter the header on Twenty Eleven – I have the Custom Design upgrade and can access the CSS code. I copied a bit of code I found on http://www.throwingabrick.com to get rid of the white space at the top of the page and effectively drop the title and tagline into the banner image, and it worked fine, except that the default thin grey tagline text now virtually vanished against my shades-of-grey banner image, and the Searchbox fouled the image on the right hand side. I took the code off again till I knew a bit more about what I was doing!
I don’t want to make the banner image smaller, I like it the size it is.
I’d like to be able to change the colour of the title, modify the font so the title is white with a black drop shadow.
I want to make the tagline text bold and change its colour so it shows up nicely against the grey banner image.
I also need to alter the width of the right-hand tagline margin so the tagline text doesn’t intrude on the silhouette in my banner image.
lastly, I'd like to get rid of the ‘search’ box altogether, as it is duplicated immediately below the banner by a widget.
Sorry to have such a list of stuff, but it's really bugging me!
