In this tutorial viewers will learn how to position items using CSS's three positioning types
1. Create a new HTML document with an internal stylesheet.
2. Create another div in CSS and name it Absolute
3. Type "position:absolute;" and "top:10px; left:50px;". Define its background-color as blue. Define its dimensions as 500 by 500px.
4. Create a div in CSS and name it Relative
5. Type "position:relative;" and "top:10px; left -30px;". Define its background-color as red. Define its dimensions as 300 by 300px. Relatively positioned elements are positioned relative to its normal position; that is, if it would ordinarily be at position left:50px because of its container div, typing left:-20px would send it back to the 30px position.
6. Create another div in CSS and name it Fixed
7. Type "position:fixed;" and "top:10px; left:10px;". Define its background-color as yellow. Define its dimensions as 50 by 50px. Create another div for a Container and define its height as 1000px. Fixed elements do not move, even when the page is scrolled.
8. In HTML, type the tags for all of the divs. Place the Relative div inside the Absolute div. Place all the divs inside the Container div. Refresh the page to see the effects.
