The position property changes how element are positioned on the web page.
You should use the switch statement if you want to select one of many blocks of code to be executed.
Static positioning is by default the way an element will appear in the normal flow of your (X)HTML file. It is not necessary to declare a position of static as doing so is no different than not declaring it at all.
Positioning an element relatively places the element in the normal flow of your (X)HTML file and then offsets it by some amount using the properties left, right, top and bottom. This may cause the element to overlap other elements that are on the page, which of course may be the effect that is required.
Positioning an element absolutely, removes the element from the normal flow of the (X)HTML file and positions it to the top left of its nearest parent element that has a position declared other than static. If no parent element with a position other than static exists then it will be position from the top left of the browser window.
Positioning an element with the fixed value is the same as absolute except the parent element is always the browser window. It makes no different if the fixed element is nested inside other positioned elements.
An element that is positioned with a fixed value will not scroll with the document. It will remain in its position regardless of the scroll position of the page.
When positioning elements with relative, absolute or fixed values the following properties are used to offset the element:
position: absolute; top: 10px; right: 10px;
