I have a parent div with position:relative;. I have a child div with position:absolute; with left and top values set accordingly. This works wonderfully in Firefox (what a surprise).
The child div is completely invisible in IE7. Very strange! This is the interesting part…I have two a tags (links) inside of this child div. What I’m doing is absolutely positioning a child div and listing links vertically inside of the child div…I’m basically positioning a list of links inside of the parent div.
What has worked is removing the child div and absolutely positioning the links…but this is not a solution because I cannot be sure if there will be one link or five, or which order these links appear.
Can anyone tell me why the child div remains invisible when absolutely positioned but the link elements inside of it are visible when they take the absolute positioning? Can anyone offer a solution.
