Floating vs positioning
Hello, I did search the forum before creating this topic but the thread I found was over 1 year old and there was a message saying its frowned upon to revive threads over 1 year old, so for that reason I created my own.
I am wondering whether I should be using floats or using position: relative/absolute to position things?
I float pretty much all my content but I wanted to know if positioning things make a site more flexible/compact. Not sure of the pro's and con's of each. I've always been advised to steer clear of positioning things absolutely, so I kinda dropped relative and never bothered to learn it.
Can anyone shed some light for this issue?
