<b:widget id=’Header1′ locked=’true’ title=’YOUR_BLOG_TITLE (Header)’type=’Header’/>
Now you will have to do some little arrangement to the code above by changing so things listed below.
maxiwidget=’1′ to maxiwidget=’2′
So after doing that your code should look like this

<b:widget id=’Header1′ locked=’true’ title=’YOUR_BLOG_TITLE(Header)’ type=’Header’/>
