I have a div that needs to be anchored to a table that is centered on the page.  The problem is that if the user resizes its browser window, the table moves but not the div. Can anyone help me anchor the div to the table?

<div align="center">
      <table border="1" width="100" height="248" id="table1">
            <tr>
                  <td align="center">table
                                                               <div style="position: absolute; width: 231px; height: 29px; z-index: 1; left: 579px; top: 24px" id="layer1">
                        This Div should anchor as the table moves</div>
                  </td>
            </tr>
      </table>
</div>

Check this:


<body onResize="rePosit()" onScroll="rePosit()" onLoad="rePosit()">
<div align="center">
     <table border="1" width="100" height="248" id="table1">
          <tr>
               <td align="center" id="theAnchor">table
                                                               <div style="position: absolute; width: 231px; height: 29px; z-index: 1; left: 579px; top: 24px" id="layer1">
                    This Div should anchor as the table moves</div>
               </td>
          </tr>
     </table>
</div>

</div>

<script>
function rePosit(){
  var x = y = 0;
  var theCell = document.getElementById("theAnchor");
  while(theCell.offsetParent){
    x += theCell.offsetLeft;
    y += theCell.offsetTop;
    theCell = theCell.offsetParent;
  }
  var theDiv = document.getElementById("layer1");
  theDiv.style.left = x;
  theDiv.style.top = y;
}
</script>
