Sorry to ask what is probably a really stupid question, but I'm having
a spot of bother with a website that I'm trying to build as a favour
for a friend. I thought that I would try and do it in xhtml and use css
to position elements - this being the way forward I'm told.
It works fine with IE, but in Safari the central element shoots up to
the top and covers the menu, arg!
It's at http://www.fannydupont.com/beautyjs.html and I'd be super
grateful if anyone can make any suggestions as to where I could look
for clues or what I've done wrong.
Sorry to sound so daft!

It wouldn't be so bad if you hadn't posted this so many times in so many
Have you taken the time to learn how different positioning methods
actually work so you can use them properly? I'm going to guess you haven't.
I don't see this. It must be a version-specific bug.
Don't let some authoring tool generate your code for you. They usually
do a lousy job of it.
Don't absolutely position everything. It is unnecessary and only sets
you up for failure if you don't know what you're doing. Use normal
static positioning along with margins and/or padding to space things out.
If you're going to use CSS positioning, take some time to learn how it
works so you can use it wisely. Then you might not sound so daft. ;)
