general rule for block position?

in general, how does css teach us to position blocks relative to one
specific block? how does one specify which block is the reference for the
position of others relative to it?

for example, position block A somewhere; then create blocks B thru Z which
intend to have specific positions relative to A--above, below, left, and
right.

i understood the standard to say "position:absolute" is actually relative to
the most recently positioned block. but what if i intend to position two or
more blocks relative to an initial block? thanks.
