Im working on a website and im using css to postion things on the page. The problem im having is when I change the resolution they move and they need to stay aligned to an image in the background. If someone wants to see the layout and what I mean pm me. I dont want to show too many people the layout since the site hasnt launched yet.

Better still, I am too lazy to PM you... So if you PM me I might have a look if you have not solved the issue.

are you using absolute or relative positioning? If you're using relative (the default), try changing to absolute and position everything according to the left and top of the screen.

Thats what I did, but when you change the resolution the pixels from the sides change and the background image doesnt.

Well, obviously it won't centre in M$ Explorer if you set the margins to auto since it is a recognized bug in that browser. I haven't seen the code so I am working blindfold.

CSS hacks normally if you aren't using something like <center> or negative margins or converting block to inline.

If you use both margin:auto and text-align:center on an table, margin:auto will center the standard-compliant and text-align will center M$IE, but I guess if you say they conflict, i'm not sure what to suggest.
