That's no problem. If you give the menu div 'position: absolute;' but
*don't* set its position explicitly, it stays in its normal place, just
below the heading (however big it is). Being absolutely positioned just
makes it 'take up no space' so you can put the content div alongside it,
it doesn't actually change the positioning unless you tell it to.
