position absolute not working with XHTML

I was wondering if this is a known bug?

Whenever I use the

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

instead of the

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

any inline styles using the position absolute style won't work.

for example, if I want to float a drop down menu over an image, the drop down menu will not apply the position i set up when using the xhtml doc type header.

is this a known bug? are there any fixes for it?

inline styles don't work with strict doctype...thats why its strict (only external css files are to be used).

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

and you'll be fine,
good luck
