How does css position impact element width/height?
How do the various options for css position (static, relative, absolute, fixed) impact the way percentage width/height is calculated? This question may be too generic to provide a concrete answer, and it's possible that the answer is "the two are not directly related", but I'm having trouble understanding the impacts of css position on element size.

I recommend that you read A List Apart's CSS Positioning article. It's the best article I've seen on the web.
