is the position of an element relative to the browser window? or to the table it is in?

that depends if you set the position to absolute or relative.

style="position:absolute [relative]; top:100px; left:200px; "

but maybe you could be a bit more concrete.

If you set it's position to absolute, then it should be relative to the lowest element that contains it that *also* has position set to absolute.

At least, that's what the W3C specs say, but not all old browsers do it that way.

I was just thinking about this while I sit here in Java class, and I think my problem might be this:

<table><tr><td>
<div>Header Div</div>
<div>Body Div</div>
</td></tr>

<tr><td>Something Else</td></tr>
</table>


I'm trying to scroll the body div, and it slips under the table cell below the one these divs are in. probably because i am trying to scroll through 100% of it's parent cell, but can't because there is an element on top of it.

I'll check it out when I get to my home terminal
