Solution :

Without using any extra markup, there's a couple of things you could do.

Apply a negative top margin on the h1:


Position the h1 absolutely:

Without your body border:

Without using the border you've added to the body you can simply style the h1 as you require:

body {background:yellow;margin:0;padding:0;}
