I have a div containing an image. I want to place another div on top of the first div with instructions and a dismiss button. It must not be an alert window. It must scroll and remain in the same place if the parent window is resized. I know how to dismiss the top window. I have tried style position=relative: messes the rest of form, absolute: goes bad when resize window.

Found the answer

<div style="position:relative;">

      <a ...... /> </a>

<div id="helper"  
        style="  position:absolute; left:50px; top:50px; width:300px;
</div>
</div>

Now the contained window is relative to the container. Jeez. Who would have known.

css is a bit opaque. Found this solution after searching and messing about for n hours.
