I suppose I will just sum up the issues I think may be a problem, and maybe this rings a bell with you:
1. when placing a div within another div, in Mozilla, if the outer div is position:absolute, the inner one's width is 0.
1. position absolute in mozilla: does it position with respect to its containing div, or the body?
2. does a absolutely positioned div in mozilla size to content?
3. What should your body style be set too? this is what i do currently:
2. Relative position should be according to the nearest positioned element in all browsers. Absolute position is the body though.
3. Yep, it resizes to content.
var currentleft = document.getElementById('theID').style.left;
var currentwidth = document.getElementById('theID').style.width;
5. The body styles look fine. I would, however, change background-color to just background. Also, absolute positioning isn't necessary for the body tag. Use padding: 0px as a shorthand for left/bottom/right/top.
Note: Just make sure to have a <noscript> tag apply "acceptable" styles in case JS is turned off.
1. He wasn't adding "px" to his numbers when setting left, width, and so on.
