    I’m trying to position a rectangle element linking a page on top of img3.jpg. This is what I got and can’t get it to be positioned where I want it to be.

    “[img src=”images/img3.jpg” alt=””>
    [a style=”background-color:#feab0a; color:white; position:absolute;top:300px; z-index:103;”>[a href=”page3.html””> Learn More[/a>[/a>

    I can’t ever seem to get the CSS positioning property understood correctly. I play with top/left/right/bottom parameters and they don’t seem to correspond. Help please.


    what is img3.jpg? is it an important part of the content (and if so, why are you covering it up?) or is it just part of the design? I’m guessing it’s design and should probably be in css as a background image to the anchor.


    img3.jpg is the background of a java script element (slideshow fading in/out the img3.jpg) but on top of that I would like to add a button linked to another page.

    Does that make sense?


    Oh, and I got a stylesheet for the page, I’m just inline CSS for my convenience until I find the right CSS setting that sets this button in place.


    Using margin top/left/right/bottom parameter I can almost get the button on the right position but then I loose it out of the background picture. But it seems wrong to use the margin to place it there, right?
