Position a picture

How do you exactly place a picture on a page i.e. by pixels

RE: Position a picture

Hi Dave, thanks for your query and apologies for the delay. As you have probably discovered by now everything is positioned on a simple web page relative to everything else, which can make specific positioning problematic. Historically, designers have got round this with a) complex table layouts b) frames and these days c) with CSS. CSS is a huge subject and a walkthrough of absolute and relative positioning would stretch this forum, but have a look at the link below for an introduction. I would really recommend if you want total control over the positioning of elements on your webpage that you explore CSS.


Hope this helps,

Expression Web tip:

Protecting Email Addresses

If you put mailto: links on your web page, spammers can crawl your web site and 'pick up' the e-mail addresses quite easily.

One tip to deal with this is to NOT use mailto: links at all. Simply write the e-mail address, and don't link it.

Spammers can get these e-mail addresses too, so one thing you can do to stop the majority of spammers getting just plain text e-mail addresses of your web pages is to use the following code:


This code will appear correctly on your web page and allows users to copy and paste it into their email client, but isn't seen by the automatic harvesters that spammers use.
