create some <a href="http://fiddle.jshell.net/" rel="nofollow">http://fiddle.jshell.net/</a>

so we can understand your code.


Relative positioning inside of <table> tags is not supported. <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/tr.html" rel="nofollow">Table rows</a> in fact are simply containers for the bits that show in the GUI (the <td> and <th>). You can style the <a href="http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_tr.asp" rel="nofollow">background color of the table row</a>, but very few other visual aspects extend to this element. Because tables already contain positioning by design it's a waste of time trying to overwrite it. You should either use <div> tags and style them with positioning or use the built-in <a href="http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_tab_table-layout.asp" rel="nofollow">Table CSS styles</a>.
