Sorry to come across blunt - but I don't think the web standards group is meant to be a teacher of css. Great that people on here are wanting to learn. But there are plenty of other places dedicated to these sort of things. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Michael Horowitz" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>

Subject: Re: [WSG] Positioning was Extra white line on the top of my list


In playing I've found using the relative positioning working pretty good for me. Is it just a matter of personal preference what I use then?

Thanks for the article I really haven't understood negative margins.

The live page is horowitzfamily.net. I'm just learning positioning and this seemed to
work.  The issue as mentioned earlier was transparency in my image.

however I am just learning to do css without tables and really don't know what I "should" be doing for positioning. Quite honestly in hacking around this worked. I'll
be happy to get feedback on better techniques for the future



CSS gives you a lot of options for positioning elements on a page.
As with all design issues, the "best" choice is usually a compromise,
depending on what you want to achieve.

My first choice for positioning elements is often to use margins -
including negative margins on occasion. See this CommunityMX article
for more:

Hope this helps.

Cordially,
David
