    Newbie questions....

    Hi guys.... few baby questions...

    1. Ok so for usual fixed layouts... does one use floats for positioning, or the relative or absolute for say navigation and columns?

    2. When would use a background image over a typical image?

    thanks

    I'm sorry I have no idea what you're saying in question 1

    2) I tend to stay away from positioning as much as I can, because various browsers read it slightly different, or rather standard browsers and non-standard browsers read it differently.

    3) I always use a background image for static images, because occasionally IE6 throws a padding 3px to the bottom which I have yet to figure out how to remove, with background images its more consistent - plus u can put stuff on top of it easily.

    Your right I deleted question sorry.

    So your saying use floats is that right? Isn't floating a form of positioning?

    Yes I use floating layers, they allow more fluid, but more importantly are more consistent across various browsers - assuming you understand how they work.
