It appears that position:relative is not very useful, but it will perform an important task later in this tutorial. 3. position:absolute When you specify position:absolute, the element is removed from the document and placed exactly where you tell it to go.

Let's move div-1a to the top right of the page: What I really want is to position div-1a relative to div-1. Footnotes 10.
