    Is there anyway to have a header for multiple pages on top of individual page layers? I know I can use Master pages for headers, but they are 'on top.' Is there any other sort of "symbol" or "instancing" possible in Muse which stays 'on top' and where you edit one and it edits all on other pages as well?

    For instance, I'm creating this site:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3788438/temp/index.html

    And would like the header which is on this first page to appear on all other pages.

    Thanks for any help. :)

    You could still use master page.
    It's not just for headers, it's for anything you want persistent across multiple pages.
    This, combines with the use of layers, will give you what you want.

    For example:
    I have a master page set up with three layers.
    1. Top Layer (header, menu, footer)
    2. Middle layer (page content)
    3. Bottom Layer (page background)

    On all other pages, just add your content on the middle "content" layer or on any layer you create that's below the top layer.
    In the layer panel, you can still see the layer order of all pages created.

    Hope this helps,

    So if I underrated correctly, for each page in the website, I would create a "TOP" layer, which is left empty, above a layer named "MIDDLE", which is where the content is stored.

    Then I would create and link to those same pages a master page which has the exact same named layers only this time keep the MIDDLE layer empty and put the fixed header in the TOP layer.

    Is this correct?

    Not quite, I'll try to clarify.
    Give me a minute.

    Let's start with the master page and the elements you want on top, and on every page.
    Let's say it's the header, menu, and footer.
    The menu bar has Home, About, and Gallery.
    Still on the master page, you design the elements (header, menu, footer) as you want.
    Now in layers, it's simpler if your design elements are all on the same layer, so let's assume this is true for now.
    We are still on master page with just one layer we are going to call 'top'.
    Now you can create another layer below the 'top' layer we'll call 'middle'.

    Now navigate back out to plan view and double click on home.
    Take a look at the layers panel. You should see the 'top' layer and the 'middle' layer.
    All you have to do now is add the content you want seen on the home page into the 'middle' layer.
    OR any layer you create that is BELOW the 'top' layer.
