The header on the website is actually added by a php script, not by
boostbook. I was going to suggest doing it in CSS, which is possible
but the markup boostbook generates for the header is pretty bad and
makes it difficult, so instead I think I'll implement an alternative
header style that you can set. Maybe using something like
'nav.border=Fullbleed', or perhaps by adding an option to let you use
your own css class and style it yourself? I'll try to get that done
after the new release.

I put up a quick attempt at:

Although it won't work properly without extra CSS along the lines of:

.header-fullbleed { margin: -1em -1em 0 -1em; overflow: hidden; }
.header-fullbleed img { display: block; }
