I work on a mac. Trying to get he display cabinet (on right) to float over navigation bar and image of man working.  I got it to sit nice in some browsers but in other browsers, it goes off the page.  Any advice on keeping the display actually on the website (and not on the wood background)?

Hi nsitedesigns,

You need to set your .container to a position: relative. This will then give a bounding box for the img you want to position absolute. Your new CSS for .display and .container would be this:

.container {
  width: 946px;
  background-color: #FFF;
  margin: 40px auto;
  position: relative;
}
.display {
  position: absolute;
  top: 90px;
  right: 20px;
}

Open in new window
