Problem with CSS position.

On my page, I'm positioning text on tabs. The following code appears on my

<img src="images/plainTop.gif" border="0" alt="" />
<div style="position: absolute; top:98px; font-size: small">
<div style="position: absolute; left: 190px"><a href="aboutus.html">About
<div style="position: absolute; left: 321px"><a
<div style="position: absolute; left: 415px"><a
href="stocksprings.html">Stock Springs</a></div>
<div style="position: absolute; left: 542px"><a href="sitemap.html">Site
<div style="Position: absolute; left: 655px"><a

This displays perfectly in both Firefox and Mozilla. In Internet Explorer,
however, the text doesn't appear at all. Would one of you experts be so
kind as to point out my error?

Are you sure the text isn't somewhere unexpected? Maybe it's above or below
where you expect it? I've had some odd issues with IE and absolute
positioning in the past. Try putting some borders around your divs to see if
they show up where you expect. If so, can you highlight and see the text? IE
is also known in some circumstances to render text behind the background.
When that happens, you can normally select it and it will be at least
partially visible.
