Also, I want to be able to align a div on the right for a scrolling text window.
I’m learning that CSS positioning is complicated and to NEVER use absolute positioning (at least that seems to be the concensus)
One more thing: Do you know of a good reference for stuff like this. The books I’m finding are more foundation in nature. Something more like the series "Photoshop WOW" for Photoshop. More real world examples.
I’m having trouble understanding the question I think…
Could you explain exactly what you want this to do and what is not working now?
And regarding absolute positioning. Don’t believe everything you read I guess, I find it very useful in many circumstances. I think it can be misused quite a bit, but if you understand it and how it works it’s just a tool like everything else. I think one of the most important "ah-ha" moments of absolute positioning is that if an element is absolutely positioned, it is absolutely positioned relative to the next parent element that is relatively positioned. That might sound greek… took a long time for that to sink in for me, but it will come :D .
