Are you absolutely positioning the div, or are you absolutely positioning
the content that is supposed to surround the div?
If so, that would explain why the contents of the div seems to have no
effect on the content that should be surrounding it. Absolute positioning
removes the content from the flow of the document, allowing it to overlay
the content underneath it. This is actually useful, but I assume it's not
useful for your particular purposes.
CSS positioning is what bites folks first when they start learning CSS. If
this is what's causing your grief, you may want to look for a good CSS
positioning tutorial or explanation.
Although I haven't read this particular tutorial, I've read other things
on this site and they've been fairly good. Give this one a shot:
