Abstract:

It’s minutes before you should be leaving work on a Friday afternoon but you can’t bring yourself to quit until you fix this UI bug. The label is over the text box and you know it should be a simply fix but, for some reason, nothing is working. You try display: inline. Nope. display:inline-block. Nothing. position: absolute. That makes it worse. Position: relative. Bingo! Why did that work? Doesn’t matter, just commit and push.

If you’ve ever been in this position (no pun intended), then come discover how to use CSS positioning and finally understand what the float is going on.
