place components at specific locations?

Hello, is there any way to place a JSF component e.g. outputtext, checkbox at a specific location (X and Y coordinates) on the screen?
I have a floor plan as a background and I need to place a component on top of each room in the floor plan. If not is there another way to arrange this? Thank you.

Remember that jsf produces html, css and javascript. You should look at css to solve this problem.
