Good Day.

My div will not position properly. Rather, it just sits in the top-left corner. I have tried z-index with no luck. The first Div represents the background for my page, and the div inside of that is supposed to be positioned inside the message box on the background.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Try to remove "position:absolute" and the attributes. Use padding and margin to manage your div position. MMM maybe something like this

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

<div style="margin-top:500px; margin-left:500px; width:100px; height:100px; border:#000000 3px SOLID; color:#ffffff">DZHZDFHZ DHZDGHZD GHZZGNF GNFN CONTENT</div>

Quoted items don't always work across line breaks in tags. You have styles that take up three lines. Make a stylesheet style for those. You can have line breaks in a stylesheet.

Don't use abslute position. Try to the second div to white clear:both ad left margin:500px. i think it's work, but i dont know what u want to make

Good day, karysma.
Your code had a few errors marked with red.

Report:
1. There was a typing error in "position" declaration "absoute"
2. z-Index is not needed for absolutely positioned elements to come into view, -they get on top of all nonpositioned elements by default.
3. Few other closures for elements which are not opened: "</font> </div>" removed.

Regards.
