Chapter 16.  Layout with Styles > Offsetting Elements In the Natural Flow

Offsetting Elements In the Natural Flow

Each element has a natural location in a page's flow. Moving the element with respect to this original location is called relative positioning. The surrounding elements are not affected—at all.

To offset elements within the natural flow:

1.
Type position:relative; (don't forget the semicolon).

2.
Type top, right, bottom, or left.

3.
Type : v, where v is the desired distance that you want to offset the element from its natural location, either as an absolute or relative value (10pt, or 2em, for example).

4.
If desired, type ; (semicolon) and repeat steps 2 and 3 for additional directions.
