In your stylesheet, remove the default padding:

h1 {
padding:0;
}

It could be padding, margin or line-height.

font: normal 12px/12px arial, sans-serif;

h1 { font-size: 12pt; font-weight: bold; font-family:Tahoma }

Your browser would have typically some preset padding and/or margin on <h1>. Reset them to get rid of the default.

If you start a new CSS, it might be a good idea to reset all padding and margins:

* {padding:0; margin:0}

Now remember this messes with e.g. <ul>'s that need some of that, so you'll end up styling them to get hem back to "normal". Les aggressive resetting can of course be done as well.

Have you tried using Firefox and its CSS tool to see all CSS being applied to your H1 tag?

I always specifically set margin and padding for H tags.

If setting it to zero did not help, than there may be something else around your H1 tag that is making that gap.
