Dynamic positioning (Definition)

Cascading style properties for positioning objects within the page.

Dynamic positioning in MSIE is accomplished with the style object that belongs to each Element object in the MSIE DOM. This means that every tag pretty much corresponds to an object in the MSIE DOM. This gives a very fine-grain approach to style and position attributes.

Netscape prior to version 6.0 had to accomplish dynamic positioning by means of layers. This is a bit more complicated than the CSS positioning now available in the new version.
