    problem with absolute positioning

    I'm setting up a blog using b2. The way it's set up, I have a table with an image, with the b2 code on top of the image. The first three b2 entries work fine and sit over the image, however if I do another entry, the last entry sits on top of the first. I know this occurs because it reaches the end of the table...I'm very new to html and css, so I may be missing something obvious, but how do I make it so that the positioned b2 code stretches each time an entry is added? My blog is here: http://www.emilyadi.com/blog

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    if your using absolute positioning, you could just create a different z-index to float above everything.

    still unsure

    My understanding of css is very basic. I looked up stuff about z-index and I made it so that the text over the image that was having the problem was the top layer, however that still didn't allow it to stretch vertically as much as it wanted. I redid my layout, eliminating the table thinking that could be the problem, but it seems not to be. If I post a new entry, the page does increase in length, however it still doubles back on itself.
    Thanks again for taking the time to read this :)
