Faux absolute positioning

filed under: @ 09:26:02 by 7colors

There are two popular approaches to positioning with CSS: float and absolute positioning. Both approaches have their pros and cons. My teammates and I have developed a new positioning approach that gives us the best of both worlds. After quite a bit of experimenting and testing, it's time to share the technique with the rest of the world and see how we can work together to improve it. I'm calling it faux absolute positioning after the faux columns technique that simulates the presence of a column.
