The position property sets or returns the type of positioning method used for an element (static, relative, absolute or fixed).
Set the position property:
Return the position property:
|static||Elements renders in order, as they appear in the document flow. This is default.|
|absolute||The element is positioned relative to its first positioned (not static) ancestor element|
|fixed||The element is positioned relative to the browser window|
|relative||The element is positioned relative to its normal position, so "left:20" adds 20 pixels to the element's LEFT position|
|inherit||The value of the position property is inherited from parent element|
The position property is supported in all major browsers.
Note: The value "inherit" is not supported in IE7 and earlier. IE8 requires a !DOCTYPE. IE9 supports "inherit".
