Try to use:
top: -25px; left: 100px; position: relative;
instead of position: absolute

You would have to add td id="MPT" and combine the links inside. I just can't get it to work with both of the links inside that td with a different properties...

Are you using tables or Div's?

If you are using Div tags then perhaps you could try putting the entire sidebar into a div with relative positioning, and then create another div inside the sidebar dive for the HTML link and give it absolute positioning. This ways the sidebar will float with the change in window size, but the div with the link will retain its absolute positioning within the sidebar div.

Give a try... it might just do the trick.

You can see a great tutorial on CSS Positioning here...

Good luck!
