I have long been against absolute position. I always felt it the “lazy” way out. Until recently! I’ve finally seen the light! Absolute positioning works extremely well inside of a relative position. In fact it works so well, that it reduces my browser testing time because IT IS actually consistent!

If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to start thinking about upgrading your existing website or creating a new website with HTML5. HTML5 contains a lot of new features and new tags that help simplify the HTML required to create nice website designs.
Currently all of the major browsers and their latest versions all support the core new tags (header, footer, section, etc…). However, the older browsers Internet Explorer 7 and 8 for example, do not support these. In this article, I will show you how to create a new site with HTML5 while ensuring that it still looks good in older browsers. It won’t be perfect, but it will be pretty darn close to it.
