Tags: css,image,border

Problem :

I want to know how I can manage something like this in css.

enter image description here

I mean the M, in my case this is a picture of a letter, which have to go over a border.

I try it on tipeeestream on a event list, and I've tried some things, but doesn't work. The problem is, that I don't get a good resource about their css style and I have to get a informations about the browser about their css sytle.

Can someone help me out please?

Edit: This is my css code in their editor

 .event .left {
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 3px 0 3px 3px;
    border-color: black; 
.left {
    width: 50px;
.left:after {
    content: "";
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    display: block;
.event .middle, .event .right {
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 3px 3px 3px 0;
    border-color: black;
.event.middle-event .middle, .event.middle-event .left, .event.middle-event .right{
    background: transparent;
    border-style: none;
.event.last-event .middle, .event.last-event .left, .event.last-event .right{
    background: transparent;

Solution :

You can try with absolute and relative positioning for each of the elements, the background, the M, and the "eanwhile".

<div id="background">
  <div id="m">M</div>
<div id="title">eanwhile</div>

#background {width:500px; height:100px; background-color: yellow; border:4px solid black; position:relative;}

#m {font-size:220px; position:absolute; top:-80px;}

#title {font-size:70px; position:absolute; top:10px; left:180px;}
