To add to what others have said, another issue related to this may be the z-index bug, which can
affect the layering of positioned elements in IE7 and lower. Google z-index bug.

"[css-d] absolute positioning":
>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?
