Hi,

I seem to be struggling with something super basic.

I'm trying to place text over an absolutely positioned element, but failing

HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>

<title>Test</title>	

</head>
	
<body id="PageTop">
	      
<p style="z-index:1">Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet 
Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet 
Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet Lorem ipsum doler sit amet</p>
<div style="position:absolute;width:135px;height:135px;background:#333;top:5px;left:241px;z-index:0">&nbsp;</div>

</body>
</html>

Could anyone point me in the right direction?



Many thanks
