simple layer question in php

hi a,

I got a question as regards echoing from php onto my html page. As you can see, the left position is 10 for all three divs. It regards 10 as 10 pixels to the right of the last div. I want it to be 10 pixels to the right of absolute position (0,0). Otherwise when I position stuff on my page I will eventually be using stuff like left:-100: etc. Not good.

Where am I going wrong? Can anyone correct me? (Obviously for the end result I won't have them all at left:10; this is just for illustration. Thanks. )
echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10; top:10; width:700px;'>

<p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'><b>Training record for ".$userref." ".$brand." ".$branchID.".</b></p>

<div>";
 

echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10; top:40; width:150px;'><p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'><b>some text</b></p><div>";
 

echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10; top:40; width:200px;'>

<p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'>Training Courses</p>

<div>";

You are not closing your DIVs. It should be </div>

echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10px; top:10px; width:700px;'>
<p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'><b>Training record for ".$userref." ".$brand." ".$branchID.".</b></p>
</div>";
 
echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10px; top:40; width:150px;'><p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'><b>some text</b></p></div>";
 
echo "<div style='position:absolute; left:10px; top:80; width:200px;'>
<p style=' font-family:Verdana; font-size: 12pt'>Training Courses</p>
</div>";
