If you click&check the above image in detail you'll see I need to sort the banner (transparent?) another image would be preferred. There are several menus too: the tabs, left and right side bars plus breadcrumb trails. I've finally defined a new site within Dreamweaver [MX], so I can also focus on the style sheet(s).

Wouldn't you know it - I just checked and Denver isn't currently listed as a Drupal 6 theme. Forever a realist - this is always going to be an issue so ....
