Problem is, the 2nd div is 100% the size of the first one, and it completely covers it up. Am I missing something?

<p>this is some normal content.</p>
<div class="floatBox"><p>this is some floated content.</p>
<div class="floatBox"><p> this is some more floated content, within the other floated content.</p>
Fixed positioning is a subcategory of absolute positioning. The only difference is that for a fixed positioned box, the containing block is established by the viewport.

actually what I'm really using is an absolute box within an absolute box that's scrollable. I'd like to update the internal box to be position:fixed so that if the container is scrolled, the internal box still shows up where I want.
since position fixed takes it's size and location from the viewport, that'll be much more difficult
