This will work in IE5.0:
<style>
      #leftbutton{
            position:absolute;
            right:16px;
            top:0px;      
      }
      #rightbutton{
            position:absolute;
            right:0px;
            top:0px;      
      }
</style>
..but it doesn't work in IE4.0. How can I produce the same layout (two images positioned on the top right) in IE4?

For CSS-P I believe you actually need to declare the top and left properties:
so the code would be:
<style>
#leftbutton{
position:absolute;
left:546px;
top:0px;
}
#rightbutton{
position:absolute;
left:560px;
top:0px;
}
</style>

If you need to place in the top right corner of the window, you will need to sniff the client width and position accordingly.  I don't have my reference here at home, took it to work, but if you need to figure out the height let me know and I will look it up.

thanks davlun,
yes it would be helpful if you could help me with client height. The images have to remain in the top right when the window is resized as well.

how about instead of using div's using a table

<table width=100% border=0>
<tr>
  <td align=left>
     leftbutton here
  </td>
  <td align=right>
     rightbutton
  </td>
</table>

and place an additional topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 in your body-tag.

fwickes,
CJ_S proposed a solution that is used by many for these kinds of layouts. You may wish to consider that since it is easier to work with than div's, but I will check the code on this later today when I get to work.

thanks CJ_S, I will use tables as a very last resort as it will change the layout of the rest of the exisitng page.

Or use:

..MyDiv {position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px;}

<div class=MyDIV>
<table width="javascript:return window.screen.availWidth" border=0>
<tr>
  <td align=left>
     leftbutton here
  </td>
  <td align=right>
     rightbutton
  </td>
</table>
</div>

Sorry for the delay in getting back on this one, the offsetWidth and offsetHeight will return the values for the browser area that is usable in IE.

Once you know the size you can script the position of the div that has been absolutely positioned with:

<script>
function repositionLayer(){
document.all.myDiv.style.posTop= document.body.offsetHeight - 100;
document.all.myDiv.style.posLeft = document.body.offsetWidth - (document.body.offsetWidth-10);
document.all.style.visibility="visible"
}
</script>
<body onLoad="repostionLayer()">

What I do is make the initial state of the layer hidden, then onLoad, reset the position of the layer dynamically and make it visibile.  The final result is a div that appears to be the last thing to load.
