CSS Question

My text moves up and down when my browser resizes

I have been working on a new homepage for my website, but
I can't figure out why text moves up and down when I resize
my browser.

My CSS Code:

.welcome {
width: 100%;
height: 60px;
background-color: #4CAF50;
margin-top: -4px;

.welcome h1 {
font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
color: white;
font-size: 40px;
margin-bottom: 20px;
margin-top: 5px;
margin-left: 15px;

.welcome p {
color: white;
overflow: hidden;
float: left;
position: relative;
top: -50em;

#welcome-background {
width: 100%;
height: auto;
max-height: 1000px;
margin-top: -16px;
min-height: 500px;

If you see any other CSS error's please let me know


<div class="welcome">
<h1 style="float:left;">About Us</h1>

Your paragraph uses relative positioning, which means it is still in the flow of the document. Because it comes after an image, its vertical position changes as the height of the image changes.

Instead. put the image and paragraph inside of a wrapper element that is positioned relatively, then position the paragraph with absolute positioning.

This could look something like this:


<div id="welcome-wrapper">
    <img id="welcome-background" src="...">
    <p>Hardwire Studios' is...</p>


#welcome-wrapper {
    position: relative;

#welcome-wrapper p {
    position: absolute;
    top: 10em;
