    Absolute and Relative positioning

    Hi people,

    I am new to HTML and CSS. I don't understand the difference between relative and absolute positioning. Someone please help to explain this.

    Thanks.

    I just read your article and it explains positioning in such a way that I actually remember the concepts. This is one area of CSS where I could understand someone's explanation one day and be totally unsure of myself the next, so that I felt like I was almost using the expressions randomly, hoping I was choosing the correct one for the situation. Your article solved that problem.
