Thanks to Stumble Upon, I found this — This tutorial examines the different layout properties available in CSS: position:static, position:relative, position:absolute, and float.
The default positioning for all elements is position:static, which means the element is not positioned and occurs where it normally would in the document.
Normally you wouldn’t specify this unless you needed to override a positioning that had been previously set.
It is a good quick read for those who are interested in CSS. Go here.
