    Hello,
    Currently I have the following astronaut cartoon image on top of my main page http://kdoster.com. As far as I can tell, it works fine on the major browsers, but I have it set as absolute positioning. I have the rest of my layout set up as relative positioning, and I would like to try to use relative for the astronaut as well. I know, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, but this is about having everything uniform. I have a page container for the entire main page, and I am just inserting this div inside the page container div, with everything else. I've tried messing around and making the positioning relative, but it messes up the rest of the page. I'm thinking this is probably a simple fix. I was wondering if someone could look at my page and my source code and see if there was an easy way to fix this? Thanks!

    I can't complain too much about your code, but it is a little div heavy for my liking such as the navigation, but no big deal. Why didn't you just make that header one image with the astronaut?

    Generally absolute and relative positioning go hand and hand. You would normally set the container div to relative, then use absolute for the divs inside. These abs pos divs will be placed relative to the container in which they reside. I myself, and a lot of designers, will not use any positioning at all because in the grand scheme of things, they are not necessary! Basically they will present cross browser discrepencies and problems with div expansion when text is resized or content is changed.

    I was thinking of making the header and the astronaut one image, but then I figured maybe I could create more little astronaut characters and such, use a random generator and place different people in that one div everytime someone loads the page....idk though...maybe I'm doing things the hard way.. Either way, I've checked across browsers and the only problem I'm having is on IE 6. Which I dont care about IE6 anyway :-P
