Hi I have the below html.  There is a graphic in the div id="Header".  I want to put the div's for classes photobox for the graphics in the div officers on the bottom portion (over it)  of the header.

You can see this live at    http://www.cleanslatelocal118.com/index.aspx

<body>  
    <div id="Wrapper">
        <div id="Header"></div>
        <div class="clear"></div>
        <div id="officers">
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/a.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/b.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/b.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/d.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/e.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/f.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/g.png" alt="" />text</div>
            <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/h.png" alt=""/>text</div>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>

CSS for this is:

      #Wrapper
        {
            margin: 0 auto;
            max-width:1200px;
        }
       
       #Header
        {          
            margin: 0 auto;
            width: 1100px;
            height: 455px;
            background: url(images/background.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
            float:left;
        }  
           
        #officers        
        {
            background-color:#294143;
            height:200px;
            width:1100px;
            float:left;            
        }
       
        .photobox
        {
            height:200px;
            width:105px;
            padding:10px 3px 3px 3px;
            text-align:center;
            float:left;
            font-family:Calibri;
            font-size:.7em;
            color:White;      
        }

        .clear
        {
           clear:both;
        }

Do you mean like thisss85.jpg
To get this do the following
1. move your Officers inside your header
<body>  
    <div id="Wrapper">
        <div id="Header">
          <div id="officers">
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/a.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/b.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/b.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/d.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/e.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/f.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/g.png" alt="" />text</div>
              <div class="photobox"><img class="photo" src="images/h.png" alt=""/>text</div>
          </div>
       </div>
        <div class="clear"></div>
    </div>
</body>

Open in new window

Now fix your styling
i. Make header position: relative
#Header {          
  margin: 0 auto;
  width: 1100px;
  height: 455px;
  background: url(images/background.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
  float:left;
  position: relative;
}  

Open in new window

ii. Remove the background from the officers container and make it position absolute positioned at the bottom
#officers {
  height:200px;
  width:1100px;
  float:left;            
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 0;
}

Open in new window

Necessary to make sure the children (photobox) are positioned relative to their parent.
