Thank you for that, all three things I didn't know. Thank you for the sample site too. I greatly appreciate your help and comments. I knew that some of my dividers were most likely unnecessary, but I didn't really know what to do to select and position what I wanted.
I didn't know that float and absolutly positioning was an either or thing. The reason I fixed the .wrapper was I thought to resize the whole page and contain the information where I wanted it. (I've self taught my self css over this past year and this is why I have so many problems probably, I never read a tutorial I just picked and pieced together code)
Next time I post code on here I will certainly use the # feature. Thank you for pointing that out to me as well.
