Banner issue

What happens when I work on my website? I have problems. I should probably just make a thread for all of my problems because I'm like 90% of this forum right now.

So. Banner. I have a banner, but I want it to vary from style to style because if I don't, it would look tacky. So, I made some CSS for the banner.

Code:
#logo{
position:absolute;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
background-image: url("reshiram_logo.png");
}
Then, I put this code into my pages. Let's use my index for an example.

HTML:
<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="reshiram_style.css"/>
<title>Index
</title>
<a href="Index.html">
<div id="logo">
</div>
</a>
But when I do this, there's nothing. It's as if there's no code there at all; there's not even an empty gap the size of the banner or anything. It's just the content of the page with no banner, and I don't really see any problems. So, uh, help?

EDIT: This wasn't really clear, so I'd better clarify. The CSS is in the reshiram_style.css file. So it isn't because I forgot to put it in or anything.

That's because there is nothing inside your logo div, so it is zero pixels tall. You need to set a height and width on it in the CSS (presumably, the same as the dimensions of your banner image).

Also, you shouldn't need the position:absolute.
