So when the X Y coordinates are set they are based on where the element would be placed without positioning?
Ok, I removed the inline-block and the left property behaves more as I would expect. I also observe that display:block uses height and width, but display: inline does not.

But when you say, "natural position of the element." I am not clear on that. So are the left and top properties then computed based on the position of the containing div? In this case, the div with id = top? And also takes in account the line break that display:block provides?
The way an element is positioned relative makes no sense to me. When you give a relative element a top and left coordinate, what is that coordinate relative to? Absolute is easy, it's 'relative' to its parent container. But if I position:relative the left value seem wrong. I made this example to test the behavior. Div5 has a left=600px and div6 has left=500px. But div5 is closer to the left edge than div6. Why is that?

I need to make a popup window users can interact with. Users also need to be able to close the window and be navigated to different places on the main form. I am not sure if this can be modified or I need to get a JavaScript library to do this. I have FancyBox. It's modal, but it does not do the navigation I need.

I have the closing and navigation, but not the modal part. Here is the code I have to open the window and close\navigate.

Any ideas?

The code that opens the window




The popup window

The remote server already exists. I just need to connect to it and get data. Are there any examples on doing this in Java?

I have used POI often, but now I have a requirement to generate Excel spreadsheets that contain bar charts. As far as I know, POI only does scatter and line charts. Is there something else out there for Java or perhaps in other languages like C++ or C#?

I took a look at VirtualBox and will give it a try.

I looked at Hyper-V, it won't work on Windows 10 - Home. Is there something else out there?

I will let you all know how it goes. I rebuilt my Windows 10 OS this weekend. So I have a clean slate. Another reason I want is to contain viruses by using Linux for Web access.

Thanks, that looks interesting. I am surprised it comes from MS itself. Hopefully its easy to set up with Linux. I will see.

I would like to get back into the world of Linux, but I still need my Windows 10 desktop. Way back when, I had SUSU and Windows XP on duel boot. The problem is I could only use one at a time. I would like to be able to run both at the same time and switch between them. Is that possible?

I am now using JavaScript to alter pages based on the browser type. So I have this old server code I need to convert. How can I do it?

JSP
This is what I ended up doing. It works, but there is probably a better way.
