"The position properties in CSS dictate how the browser arranges the elements on a webpage. Five different values dictate the page layout. These are static, relative, fixed, absolute, and inherit. Some of the values allow the elements to reposition themselves depending on changes within the webpage or the use of different browsers or platforms. These fix their positions relative to the borders of the page."
