In-Depth Information
1. In styles.css, below the background-repeat declaration you added to the #newsletter rule set, add
the following:
background-position: right top;
2. Save styles.css.
As shown in Figure 5-14, the background image is now positioned to the far right and at the top of the newsletter
box. This declaration is the equivalent of background-position: 100% 0%. It's just a little nicer to read
and write a declaration like this when it's written using keywords!
Figure 5-14 The background image positioned to the right and at the top of the newsletter box.
If only one of the background-position values is specified, the missing value is assumed to be center , so if
you use the declaration background-position: right , the background image is positioned to the right of
the newsletter box but vertically centered.
The position of the background image might not make a huge amount of sense at the moment, but when you give the
page more structure in Chapters 6-9, it will!
In preparation, give the background image a more accurate position that will better suit the newsletter box when it
has more structure:
1. In styles.css, change the background-position declaration to
background-position: 91% 2%;
2. Save styles.css.

By default, when you scroll the viewport or an element that can scroll (you learn how to make an individual element
scrollable using the overflow property in Chapter 9), a background image moves with the scrolling of the view-
port or element.
