{ left: sPosition }

sPosition

Variant that specifies or receives one of the following values:

auto

Default. Default position, according to the regular HTML layout of the page.

length

Floating-point number, followed by an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, or pc) or a relative units designator (em, ex, or px).

For more information about the supported length units, see Length units reference.

percentage

Integer, followed by a percent sign (%). The value is a percentage of the width of the parent object.

The property has a default value of auto and is not inherited.

You should use the left property only when the position property is set; otherwise, the value of the left property is ignored.

The following example uses the left property to change the position of the object. This example uses an inline style sheet to set the position of an image 100 pixels to the right of the left edge of the parent object:

<div style="position:absolute;left:100px">
<img src="cone.jpg"></div>
