AP Div Positioning

I am working on a website and trying to position an image to a specific spot. Here is the link to the page I'm testing it on: http://67.199.146.93/~ratamaca/layouttest.html

The menu bar should be tight up against the bottom of the black banner and the red star should be just to the right of the main logo and on top of both the black banner and the blue menu bar - like this test page: http://67.199.146.93/~ratamaca/indextest2.html

The problem with "indextest2" page is that when I resize the browser window, the start moves. So I created "layouttest" using a div for the black banner - setting its position to relative and adding the star div.

I'm new to using div's and positioning - unfortunately I've been using old school tables. I'm working at getting away from that, but at this moment....here I am.

I hope someone can help me out.

This should work give it a shot:

#apDiv1 {
	position:absolute;
	width:225px;
	height:115px;
	z-index:1;
	margin-left: 820px; /* Instead of Left */
	top: 50px;
}

Open in new window


And an other advice. Don't use images in the layout itself, keep your layout free from images in the HTML. Instead add them in your stylesheet. It's easier to maintain...

Like this for example:
HTML
<div id="apDiv1>
</div>

CSS
#apDiv1 {
        background:url(KatieImages/13yearsstar275.png) no-repeat left top;
	position:absolute;
	width:225px;
	height:115px;
	z-index:1;
	margin-left: 820px; /* Instead of Left */
	top: 50px;
}

Open in new window
