Hi experts,

I'm using jquery in a html page.

I have this fiddle

if you notice in column 4 of row one I have placed an image.

How do I fix my fiddle so that the image is located on the top right corner of the cell it's currently in?

Adding this CSS will work for all cells:
#Table1 tbody td {
  position: relative;
#Table1 tbody td img {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;

Open in new window

If you don't want to mess with the td style directly, you can wrap the contents of each cell in a div and style it instead.

Setting the text-align to right and the vertical-align to top would do it.
#row1 .col4 {
    text-align: right;
    vertical-align: top;

Open in new window

Hi mate,
you have 3 options here, all valid but with different outcomes depending on what else you have on the cell.

Is there anything else preventing you from closing the question?
