Layer <div> position changes when screen resolution changes

Hi

I have a <div> tag placed just after the <body> tag, so that i want the exact position of the image at a particular place say :left:16px; top:8px
This position setting are for screen resolution 800X600.

The problem is when i increase the screen resolution to an higher one..the position changes and the image appears outside.

Is there any example in javascript or css to position my layer in the same position irrespective of my screen resolution?

Code :
<body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0">
<div id="imgLayer" style="position:absolute; left:16px; top:8px; width:131px; height:20px; z-index:1"><img src="images/myImage.gif" width="131" height="20">
</div>

Here the width, height and image width & height keeps changing according to the different pages i load.
To summarise :
in the <div> tag the position, left, top & z-index values will be constant.
What change is the the width, height and in <img> tag the image name, width and height.

Any work around???

With that absolute positioning, you should not be getting the image moving in relation to the top left corner of the browser window. Most likely it is moving in relation to something else on the page, but without seeing the context its very hard to tell. Try posting a URI.

Which browser brand and version are you using?  And if you press reload for the page in a new resolution, does the DIV then go to the correct place?  I know Internet Explorer has some sizing issues...

I am using IE 6.0.
No if i press the refresh button after changing the resolution the DIV does not goto the correct place.

For ur ref. i have pasted the code below:

<body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" onload="javascript:{if(parent.frames[0]&&parent.frames['menuFrame'].Go)parent.frames['menuFrame'].Go()}">
<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; left:16px; top:8px; width:164px; height:20px; z-index:1"><img src="images/contentLabel.gif" width="164" height="20"></div>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">mmLoadMenus();</script>
<!-- <table width="100%" border="0" align="center"> -->
<table width="767" border="0" align="center">
  <!--DWLayoutTable-->
  <tr>
    <td height="200" colspan="2" valign="top"><table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
        <!--DWLayoutTable-->
        <tr>
          <td width="590" height="253" valign="top"><table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

                    <tr>

                        </div></td>
                      <td width="11" valign="top"><!--DWLayoutEmptyCell-->&nbsp;</td>
                    </tr>
                  </table></td>

              </tr>
            </table></td>
          <td width="171" valign="top"><table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
              <!--DWLayoutTable-->
              <tr>
                <td width="171" height="290" valign="top"><img src="images/contentManImg.jpg" width="170" height="287"></td>
              </tr>
            </table></td>
        </tr>
      </table></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td valign="top"><table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#FF7100">
        <!--DWLayoutTable-->
        <tr>

          <td class="footerViewStyle">Site Best viewd in 800 X 600 resolution</td>
        </tr>
      </table></td>
   </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Any suggestions?

No changes occur for me when I change resolution.  But I see that you are calling a function Go and a function mmLoadMenus.  Could one of those be reading the screen resolution and change objects on your page?
In what way does the DIV change?  Does it get larger/smaller?  Does it move left/right/up/down?  Maybe you could put 2 screenshots somewhere so that we can see it.

- As i told u that i am using frames (2 frames - top & bottom) where i have my navigation bar with drop down menus on top frame and the bottom frame has the contents and here the drop down menus display.

So that is the reason i am using mmLoadMenus and go function.

DIV is moving towards the left when i increase the resolution to 1024.
How can i send u the screen shots??
