Positioning Elements Precisely

  • David Powers


In this chapter, I’m going to discuss CSS positioning (sometimes referred to as CSS-P), which not only removes an element from the flow of the document, but also allows you to position it with pinpoint accuracy. However, CSS positioning is rarely appropriate for laying out complete pages. Web design is different from print layout, where the dimensions of the page are immutable. Web pages need to be flexible.
