Absolute Position in IE

I have a small problem with absolute position in IE.
This CSS class works with all the browsers I have tested with except IE.
Browser Version:
IE 7.0.5730.13
FF 3.05
Safari 3.2.1
Crome 1.0.154.36



With IE, the class is rendered right below the last container not at the bottom of the parent container as I planned.

Thanks in advance for help.

IE seems to get very confused with "bottom". I've rarely gotten it to work correctly.

I haven't had an opportunity to evaluate IE8 yet, but here's hoping that they've finally gotten basic CSS implemented correctly.

Maybe Eric knows a trick or two...

Can you give me a sample code to work off of. Basic layout that gives you the issue.

The code seems to work fine in IE8 . I will look at it in IE6 when I get back from shopping for the wife.
