Here's my situation. I have a statically positioned table that has an image in a cell. I also have some layers, defined by absolute-positioned DIVs for some animation. Everything works until I scroll/resize. Then the image "moves" on the screen but the animation doesn't. The net effect is that their relative positioning changes. I'd like to have it be that they would stay in the same relative position. I want to keep the image as an...

I need to know how to overlap DIV content within 'relative' associated rendering. I am building div layers in the middle of a page and when I set positioning to absolute in the CSS, it references back to 0,0 on the entire page. If I set it to relative, the div layers will not overlap as needed. I prefer to avoid javascripting an 'innerHTML' re-write of a single div and would instead like to build two layers that can reside at the same...

Hello Reading the follwing document: http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-positioning-970131#In-flow it seems very clear that position:relative should be relative to the parent element.

I have a strange problem where it seems IE is doing the correct layout but Firefox and Safari isn't. I think I'm probably wrong, and there is something in the standards that say behaviour should be like Firefox does, but could someone tell me what is right?

Hello everyone. I'm designing a site for a friend of mine and I'm having a few issues. First off, I'm noticing that there is a difference between the default line- heights of IE and Mozilla/Firefox.
