I tried that, but I could never come up with CSS that reasonably
handled resizing windows (which might change the number of lines in
the header) or changing the font size.  What I really wanted to say in
CSS was "whatever the size of this box needs to be, just put it at the
top of the window".  I eventually came to the conclusion that CSS was
not powerful enough to do it, but it could just be that my skills were
inadequate for the job (or both).
