Unless understood css position, it will make UI designers mad. Here are few points to remember.

  1. The static value is only used for overriding a previously set value. (Most cases)
  2. Elements with position:relative are positioned relative to themselves.
  3. A relatively positioned element remains in the document flow
  4. A relatively positioned element counts as positioned, even if we don’t shift it a single pixel in any direction
  5. What people normally mean by positioning, CSS-P or layers, is elements with position:absolute.
  6. Ironically, absolute positioning is relative. An absolutely positioned element is positioned relative to another element, called the containing block.
  7. The containing block of an absolutely positioned element is its nearest positioned ancestor
  8. Absolutely positioned elements are completely removed from the document flow.
