We conclude our first ever CSS-themed week with a classic article that collates the most important CSS positioning properties.

Nigel Peck’s article CSS Positioning Properties At-A-Glance Guide was first published back in 2003, but five years later still stands strong as a compact summary of the basics of CSS positioning (although we updated a few points before republishing). In fact, the concept of this article formed the basis for the SitePoint CSS Reference, which was then expanded to include the HTML Reference, and we have a JavaScript Reference under development, so the article was quite seminal from our perspective.

In case you missed an article along the way, here’s the complete list of articles that we published this week:

I hope you’ve enjoyed our CSS week — hopefully you learned something new, and rediscovered some gold from the archives. We’ll return you to our regular schedule of two articles per week next week.

In the mean time … have a great weekend, and happy CSS coding!
