Hi, Am creating a website  http://www.alakesidevilla-florida.co.uk/Copy%20of%20BillsUpdated/Homes1.htm  .The problem I have is with a photo gallery on the right of the screen underneath Luxury Homes Choices. I fount the code while searching on the web, what it is meant to do is for example when you hover over the number 2 image it gets displayed in a bigger square.

The problem is with the positioning of the big square its appearing way over towards the left of the screen.

Have tried to mod it, but am getting knowhere with it. I require the big square to appear underneath the smaller images can anyone help

This is the link for the gallery css.


The positioning problem is within the CSS .slidek , A.gallery:hover SPAN and A.gallery:active SPAN. I think, think it is the absoulute positioning that is causing the problems.

The following link is for the style.css of the page that positions all the other elements on the page


Hope someone can help me out, have hit a brick wall. Will be most appreciated

div#luxurychoice {

GrandSctroumpf.  That has placed the box correctly, but when I hover over the image.  Something still appears in the middle of the screen.  Any ideas mate???

Think its nearly there now

Have updated the  page with absolute position so you can view again.


Once again cheers, for your time, advice and help

It works fine in IE.
In Firefox, the "luxury homes" section flashes on top of the header for a fraction of a second.  This also happens when resizing the window, so i guess it must come from something else.
