Absolutely positioned elements are positioned according to either a relatively positioned ancestor or the window. It sounds like in your case, it's being positioned in the window.
The way to fix this is to put your absolutely positioned
<div> inside a relative container. That way, as the window changes size, it will stay in the correct spot:
<div style="position: relative"> <div style="position: absolute; left: 98px; top: 45px;"> This div will always be 98px from the left and 45px from the top of its parent . </div> </div>
