These are doing stranger things than that.
Setting the position values for two DIV's, one TOP Absolute 300px and the
other BOTTOM Absolute 300px, should set them flush against each other.
In Mozilla, they do this, and in IE they don't....
I'm telling it exactly where I want things, and the browsers
are not complying.
And then there is the different implementations of
TOP BOTTOM LEFT RIGHT from browser to browser, especially
in relivitve positioning. It's just very fustrating.
