how do I postion the vertical menu on the page?


book code
#nav {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
width: 130px;
float: left; /* Contain floated list items */

my code
#nav {
position:absolute;
top:130px;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
width: 130px;
float: left; /* Contain floated list items */

when I try to postion:absolute; I seem to lose the ability to click (block)

book code
#nav a {
display: block; /* to increase clickable area as a's
default to inline */
