Relative vs. Absolute Positioning

CSS has a position property, and its values can be set to static, relative, absolute, and fixed.

When the static property is the default behavior, we can’t nudge elements from their usual flow. In contrast, when its static property is set to relative, we can nudge the elements from the normal flow, using the top, right, bottom, and left CSS properties by giving them negative and positive values. These values are usually expressed in pixels, for example:

 position: relative;
 bottom: -20px;
