Hi all,


I am new to Fluid Grid and have been trying to understand and use it in Dreamweaver. I have an issue that I created a Div and selected the image I wanted to be the background, now I need to put text on the bottom corner of the div. How do you do it? i tried creating a class for the text with padding (doesn't work, shifts the entire position of the div), I have tried position: absolute; bottom o; left:0; nothing happens.

Please help! all help is appreciated.


Thank you in advance~

    Vertical-alignment is only possible with tables or CSS display:table properties.  Unfortunately,  Fluid Grid Layouts don't support these very well.


    Show us a URL to your page so far along with a screenshot of what you're trying to do.  Maybe we can offer better suggestions on how to approach this without resorting to absolute positioning which should only be used as a last resort.

    As an example, I applied this inline CSS style to a paragraph in your LayoutDiv2.  Ideally, you would put the CSS into your content style sheet.



    <div class="punta" id="LayoutDiv2">

    <p style="margin-top:410px; font-weight:bold; color:red; text-align:center">

    Punta Arrecifes</p>
