<div class="parent_div">

  1. As, here we see that in the above example, we show you how HTML and CSS codes are used.
  2. Here, first of all, we create a basic structure of HTML, in which we use <!DOCTYPE html> which defines the type of document. And next one is our HTML tags. These tags are paired tags and all the data regarding HTML is written inside these tags.
  3. After we use our head tag which is again paired tag and contains the title and meta information of the webpage. The data written inside the head is not shown on the webpage.
  4. Now, next is our title tag which defines the title of the webpage. The tag which has its closing tag is known as a paired tag. So, this is again a paired tag.
  5. Now, next is the body which is the main tag of HTML. The data which we have written inside the body is shown on the webpage. Mostly all tags which are helpful to show data or information on the screen are written under the body tag.
  6. Now, as we see in the above codes we create two divisions. One division under another division. So, our outer division becomes parent division concerning the inner division which acts as child division.
  7. Now, as we know that we want to apply relative position CSS to parent division concerning child division. For this, we apply position relative property to parent division and absolute position to child division.
  8. At last, we use top and right to set the margin of child div according to parent div. You can see the code on the browser to visualize the results in a better way.
