Position Property Values

Value Description
absolute Absolutely positioned, relative to the first parent element that has a position other than static.
Requires "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties
fixed Absolutely positioned element, relative to window.
Requires "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties.
relative Generates a nudged position, so "left:20" adds 20 pixels to the element's LEFT position
static Default. No position, the element occurs in the normal flow (ignores any top, bottom, left, right, or z-index declarations)
inherit Specifies that the value of the position property should be inherited from the parent element.  IE does NOT use this.
