Not sure.
I am having difficulty keeping up with you-- much less understanding 
what you're after.. Try a simple h1 in the header for the long title. 
And a min-height in em to the header: for example: #header {min-height: 
10em;} And set the right margin of h1 just shy of the width of the 
image: for example: h1 {font-size: 185%; margin: 0 455px 0 0; padding: 
40px 0 0 0 0; }. You'll want to set so that it will hold without going 
under the image, or dropping out the bottom of the container at 200% 
text-zoom.

I assume you mean the photo will change from the one you are currently 
using. Adjust margin-right accordingly.
If you mean there will be a different dimension image on each page, you 
can assign a page id to deal with that.
However, if images of different dimension are being generated 
dynamically on the same page-- I think you are out of luck for a css 
solution.
