CSS rule to position text exactlly over background image

purplecrayon asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I'm trying to position a scrollable block of text exactly over a postcard featured in the background image in my header div (so that the text seems to be written on the postcard).

I've created a CSS rule named "#header p," but I don't know what to put in that rule. Placement? Clip? Padding? Margin? I'm assuming I have to somehow give it exact parameters for top, bottom, right and left.

Could someone help me out?

I'm using Dreamweaver, BTW.


PS: I'm new to EE and to me, every question I don't know the answer to seems hard. If I'm doing a bad job of assigning points, please let me know. :/
