    Postioning with CSS

    Starsail1979
      Now i'm using CSS do i have to set the positioning for everything? do i still need to use a table if i want to have a background image with i.e. text on top? Also finally...I'm not ready for specifically code yet (I'm learning though) so how do i work out the relative positions for CSS that i would have seen in design mode normally

      Thanks

          No. Just let it flow naturally. Only use positioning if and where really
          necessary.

          No. You can apply background images to almost every element you like.

          Not sure what you mean.

            Don't think 'positioning' at all. CSS is really about using the normal flow
            to plop everything where it belongs.
