I am trying to get navigation bar to be absolute positioned.  However, when I resize the browser the navbar moves. How do I keep it in place?  See Link
html, body {
  font-family: sans-serif;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  border: 0;
body { background-color: rgb(250,250,250)};
h1 {
font-family: Trebuchet MS;
font-size: 24px;
font-weight: normal;
color: rgb(47, 79, 79);
#main {
  width: 800px;
  max-width: 1000px;
  height: 600px;
  margin: 2em auto;
  padding: 1em;
#logo {
margin-top: 50px;
#buttons {
	position: absolute;
	top: 184px;
	right: 182px;
	width: 349px;
#footer {
font-size: 70%;
text-align: center;
line-height: normal;

I got it to work by futzing around with it.  I changed it from absolute to relative.
