How to remove header borders?

Hi,

I really need a little help. I`m a newbie, and I have a blogger blog. I added an image to the header, but I want to remove header borders to make it look better. I`m using rounders 3 template.

I have been googling for 3 hours, and all directions I found seem to refer to the minima template, but I want to use rounders 3 template. Can anyone tell me how to remove it? :confused:

This is my html:

      try downloading the 'web developer toolbar' add-on for firefox. theres an option on the 'css' dropdown on the toolbar that says 'view style information' if you click this option and select any element on your homepage, it will list all the style information of the element you selected in a pop-up window on the side and which line it is in within the css file itself. This makes it alot easier when you go to make changes to your website.

      That toolbar is a great tool for anyone just getting started with css.

        I downloaded firebug, also add-on for firefox. Or is that "web developer toolbar" you recommend better?

        And I could see when I remove "header wrapper" the borders are gone. But when I have make the actual change, and do it in html, I can`t find it anywhere. I must be missing something, since this is all new to me...

      Here is what I did. I changed it -

      from:

      #header {
      background:url("http://www.blogblog.com/rounders3/corners_cap_bot.gif") no-repeat $startSide bottom;
      padding:0 15px 8px;
      }

      to:

      #header {
      background:url("http://www.blogblog.com/rounders3/corners_cap_bot.gif") no-repeat $startSide bottom;
      padding:0 15px 8px;
      border: 0;

      But nothing happened. The borders are still there, unless I did something wrong.
