    Arrow Absolute Positioning With CSS Problems.

    I have always heard that absolute positioning is a real annoying thing to deal with but I gave it a go anyway as there was one bit I was doing which would have been very very difficult without it. Thing is, I noticed that although it works fine in Explorer it is way off in Netscape and a little off in Opera. Surely they should be the same?? 100px is a 100px after all right?

    Any help would be great. Thanks!!

    depends if you are declaring both top and left positions in the css, or if you are declaring one or the other, if it just one that you are declaring then yes browsers display them differently, you may be able to accomplish the same, using relative positioning as this goes off the position of its container

    It'd be best if you don't even care about positioning. It's much better to use floats and margins.
