CSS Positioning

I haven’t blogged for a bit, I have been experimenting, building and researching all at once.

I am developing my final project and I am playing around with CSS positioning – fixed, absolute and relative, to position information on my website.

Fixed position is fixing the position of an element so that when the user scrolls it stays in that same position.

Relative positioned element can be used for container blocks – as they are relative to their normal position. Absolute positioned elements are removed from the normal flow (default page behaviour) and are absolute to the first parent element (can be the relative positioned element). This link describes it well http://bavotasan.com/tutorials/absolute-and-relative-positions-in-css/.
