Any cascading style sheets (CSS) newbie will have heard about it, right? CSS positioning—absolute this and relative that. Perhaps you have some vague idea about what it is, but are afraid to try it yourself.
An element with position:absolute is removed from the document flow, which means the rest of the document acts as if the element weren’t there. It won’t affect subsequent elements. Instead, it could end up layered over other elements, unless we make sure it doesn’t. Let’s shed some light on the shadowy mysteries of CSS positioning. If your CSS skills are limited or even moderate, you will learn what you need to master positioning—it’s not difficult, once you understand the fundamental ideas behind the concept.
YAY for Satellite: It’s an online application for displaying a gallery of images remotely from your flickr.com account. It can be used as an off the shelf website that uses the Flickr API to make calls to your Flickr account so you can take full advantage of Flickr’s Organizr and keyword capabilities which are then mirrored on your personal site. When you upload images to Flickr, your website is automatically updated! Satellite™ is CSS based, so you may customize its look and feel by downloading themes or creating your own.
