RE: JAWS and relative positioning

Glad you got it to work. There is definitely some funkiness with the
way that JAWS deals with @media rules. The attached example is fun to
look at. If you take the styles out of the screen @media rules you get
very different results than if you leave it as is. Very weird.

This is apparantly all fixed in the JAWS 7.1 beta, fortunately.
