A Complete Guide to Flexbox. The Flexbox Layout (Flexible Box) module (currently a W3C Last Call Working Draft) aims at providing a more efficient way to lay out, align and distribute space among items in a container, even when their size is unknown and/or dynamic (thus the word "flex").
The main idea behind the flex layout is to give the container the ability to alter its items' width/height (and order) to best fill the available space (mostly to accommodate to all kind of display devices and screen sizes). A flex container expands items to fill available free space, or shrinks them to prevent overflow. Most importantly, the flexbox layout is direction-agnostic as opposed to the regular layouts (block which is vertically-based and inline which is horizontally-based). While those work well for pages, they lack flexibility (no pun intended) to support large or complex applications (especially when it comes to orientation changing, resizing, stretching, shrinking, etc.).

For Mint.com, Jason Putorti and I are refactoring the way we do CSS graphing to support positive and negative values, where the bars are all scaled using percentages, so the design can change without any re-engineering.
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. Doing a little research, I was reminded that when you use percents to apply the margin of an element, the browsers determine the actual size of the margin by multiply the percent against the width of the parent node (this is true for margin-top, -right, -bottom, and -left).
It is not based on either the height or width of the element that the margin is applied to. 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.
Normally you wouldn't specify this unless you needed to override a positioning that had been previously set. 2. position:relative If you specify position:relative, then you can use top or bottom, and left or right to move the element relative to where it would normally occur in the document.
