How position image using <div> tag?

I am new to asp.net and starting to develop a web page.  See attached code.  I am using Visual Studio 10 and Visual Basic to develop a Web Site project.

The problem I am having is not being able to position the image at a different place on the web page.  No matter what I enter for the top, left, and position attributes, the image always displays in the top left corner.

Thanks for the help.

I think it is because you are not quantifying your "top" and "left" values (i.e. you are telling it a number but not a unit type).

Try it as:
    <div style="top:1600px; left:1400px; position:absolute; z-index: 1; visibility:visible">
        <img alt="" src="Images/TTALogoRedSandButton.gif""/>
    </div
