Can't get positioning sorted with the #access div and CSS

  1. I've looked at it numerous times and tried it numerous ways and I just don't get where exactly it's going wrong. By my understanding the html should look like this:

    - #header Div
    - #access Div
    - .menu Div content...
    - /.menu Div
    - /#access Div
    - /#header Div

    Looking at the source code, it works this way. I have the #header div set as relative and it positions perfectly. I have set the margins, padding, positioning, etc...

    I also have the #access set with what I consider to be accurate - it has absolute positioning and drop 76px from the top and should go about 260px from the left. From what I know/understand/think, it should be positioning itself according to the #header div - but it isn't. It's positioning itself according to the browser window. This means that if someone with a really large monitor opens the page, the positioning get's completely mauled.

    Any thoughts?

  2. Nevermind - I got it sorted and it worked the way it was supposed to and expected to, I just don't know where I went wrong the first time I tried it.
