I want the youtube video that's belligerently lurking at the bottom of the screen to be positioned where the youtube graphic is.

I've got the graphic positioned "relative" and the youtube div is "absolute," but I can't get the two to cooperate.

What am I doing wrong?

Here's my stylesheet:

body {
	font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	color: #000000;
	vertical-align: top;
	height: 100%;
	width: 100%;
	margin-top:25px;
	background-color:#ffffff;
}


#graphic {
position:relative;
height:934px;
width:1085px;
text-align:center;
margin:auto;
}

#youtube {
position:absolute;
height:319px;
width:460px;
margin-left:579px;
margin-top:176px;
z-index:2;
}

You're positioning your #youtube DIV absolutely so you need to tell it where to sit. Because you already have margins in place, just add top: 0; to the rule and it'll be fine:

#youtube {
    height: 319px;
    margin-left: 579px;
    margin-top: 176px;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    width: 460px;
    z-index: 2;
}

A better solution may be to remove the margins altogether and just position the DIV

#youtube {
    height: 319px;
    left: 579px;
    top: 176px;
    position: absolute;
    width: 460px;
    z-index: 2;
}
