    Question about my CSS positioning


    Is there a way to do an absolute position, and then position other things off of that?

    For instance if you look at www.thechristianparent.com/test/ you will see a menu section on the left hand side. I want the place for links where you see test twice to be and auto height, so it adjusts accordingly. I then want to place a seporator div right below that and then have another link area. How do I position the dive below that?

    For what you describe, the float may be the more appropriate property to use. AP elements are positioned in the normal flow if no position is specified. The problem with that is if you don't position two elements in the same container, they both go to the same spot. You could position an AP element or a float element on the left, then fill with static elements.

    cheers,

    There are those who manage to build a web site without knowing what they're doing; thereby proving to themselves they do, indeed, know what they're doing.
