Hello all. Lets see if i can explain this. I will start from the inside out.

div.Data holds dynamic copy. It lives and is incorrectly spilling out the bottom of div.SiteContainer. Why is this? Shouldn't the container div stretch to fit the data within it? I know that by removing the position:absolute; in div.Data it works but i need to position the div.

Another issue is that div.PageFooter is incorrectly positioning. I want it directly below div.Data inside of div.SiteContainer.

You can find the example here, http://www.tlcgiftsandbaskets.com/demo/position.htm. This code is stripped from the home page of the URL if you want the whole thing.



<style type="text/css" title="">
body{
margin:0px;
text-align: center;
}

div.SiteContainer{ /* centers to the page.*/
position: absolute;
z-index:1;
width: 960px;
left: 50%;
margin-left: -480px;
border: 1px solid green;
}

div.Data{
position: absolute;
z-index:2;
width: 600px;
top:100px;
left:100px;
border:1px solid yellow;
}

div.PageFooter{ border:1px solid red; width:600px; }
</style>



<div class="SiteContainer">

<div class="Data">

Not quite sure what the layout should look like, but see if this helps:
body{
margin:0;
}

div.SiteContainer{
width: 960px;
margin:auto;
border: 1px solid green;
}

div.Data{
width: 600px;
margin:100px 0 0 100px;
border:1px solid yellow;
}

div.PageFooter{ border:1px solid red; width:600px; }
