Position text bottom right corner

Hi all

Do any of you guys know how I can position a body of text in the bottom right corner of the page?

I tried a <div> like this:
Code:
.bottomright {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 12pt;
  right: 0;
}
It looks alright in calibre preview, but on my reader the text appears in the top right corner.

Any suggestions?

Bottom-right corner of what page? Unless it's a fixed-layout epub from beginning to end, there are no pages.

Your best bet is forgetting about any king of vertical positiong (other than vertical margins/paddings)

Right, thought as much. I'll leave it in the top right corner then :-)

Why are you two misleading him? you can use that perfectly fine for all sorts of designs in a none fixed layout ePub!

use:
Code:
position: absolute;
bottom: 0;
right: 0;

Well, that could work in a web page but with ereader devices... Kindle for sure has big issues with absolute and relative positioning (read the Kindle Publishing Guidelines) and ADE doesn't manage well this kind of code neither.

If you are doing things for just your ipad, you can do anything you want. But if you want to do things other people can read, like on the many many many Kindles, then you have to make compromises.

I don't consider it misleading at all. Because the CSS "position" property is not supported by the ePub 2 specification.

http://www.idpf.org/epub/20/spec/OPS...htm#Section3.3

Quote:
The following table lists all CSS properties and values supported by this specification. Where not all values given in the CSS2 specification are listed for a given property, those values not listed are not supported by this specification.

I already tried that, see my initial question. Doesn't work on my Sony reader.

OK, maybe I didn't convey the message properly. I don't mean "it will never work", but rather something like: it's not possible to have a spec-compliant ePub 2.0.1 that's guaranteed to work in all spec-compliant readers, it may work in some readers, or even most, but i will most probably fail in unexpected ways in some other readers, and the reader will not be to blame.

That said, simply using "position: absolute" may be a good compromise solution, provided it fails gracefully when it fails.

Yeah, just wanted to get things straight.

JLius, the rules you posted were different to mine, that's why I thought you couldn't align it to where you wanted.

Well a work-around I often use for vertical positioning is using margin-top. It only works of course when the element you want to positions is the only one on the html-page, like a dedication or similar. You can put css like this on the element.

Code:
margin-top:80%;
for example.

Ok, thanks, I'll give it a try.

But you should know that % in vertical margins are defined with respect to the width of the container, not the height (even if the height is fixed somehow).

So, for a 800x600 portrait screen, ignoring page margins, "margin: 80%" means 600*80/100 = 480 pixels, and in landscape orientation it means 800*80/100 = 640 pixels, which is more than the screen height, not a good idea if you ask me.

You can make it look passable by using a much small amount. It moves things down the page some, to my eyes just enough to make it look like it is purposeful.
