absolute positioning

Sent by Angela French on 30 July 2010 20:08


I'm being driving nuts by absolute positioning rendering between IE and FF.  I just want to confirm
what I think is correct about absolute positioning.  My understanding is that an absolutely position
element positions itself relative to its parent container.  If the parent has not positioning, then
it positions itself absolutely relative to the grandparent container, and so forth, up to the
<body>.  Is this correct?

If so, do both IE and FF follow this?

Thank you.
