how i can specify div location in a way that one wont be over the other?

i mean for example i have already one image that have a specific location on the page
how i can insure that the other image that i will add wont run over?



this it the situation that i am trying to avoid:
<div style="position: absolute; top: 70px; left: 255px; width: 50px; height:20px;background-color: yellow;">
<img src=google.gif border=0>
</div>
<div style="position: absolute; top: 80px; left: 255px; width: 50px; height:20px;background-color: yellow;">
<img src=google.gif border=0>
</div>

you would prevent this by using your absolute positioning.  absolute positioning will place the div exactly where you want it so if you dont want it overlapping, it wont.  as a beginner though, I would stay away from absolute positioning... you will end up with different layouts across different browsers.

I agree that using absolute positioning will cause this problem, so simply don't use it.  You can either use relative positioning, or if you don't need to specifically position the image, put in a <BR> or two between them, without any positioning specified, and that will guarantee your images will not conflict.
