Learn CSS Positioning in Ten Steps: position static relative absolute float

Learn CSS Positioning in Ten Steps: position static relative absolute float
1. position:static The default positioning for all elements is position:static, which means the element is not positioned and occurs where it normally would in the document.

Let's move div-1 down 20 pixels, and to the left 40 pixels: Notice the space where div-1 normally would have been if we had not moved it: now it is an empty space. 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.

Hopefully, Jason will write a guest article about this soon, but until then, this development inspired todays article. In our graphs, the negative bar needed to be offset by the height of the positive region, and initially we thought to use the margin-top style to apply this offset. However, when we applied the style, using percentages, the resulting offset was drastically less than expected.
