Hi folks,
Ran an epub through the beta validator, and I'm getting a number of those “absolute position” error messages, which I’ve corrected in the past in Sigil by finding the line and the position and changing “absolute" to “relative.” However, when I opened up the epub in Sigil, I can find the line but unable to find the position, I'm unable to locate it, even though I do a “find” in Sigil. I’m enclosing screenshots of my first error. Can anyone please help me locate the “position?”
Am I looking in the wrong place? Usually, it’s easy to find.
Thanks for all your continued help and I hope all of you and your loved ones are safe.
Carl

First of all, the error is found in the generated CSS file – not the HTML...

So let's clear this up. For the rest, I'm absolutely safe and relatively fine. 😉

You’ll find the idGeneratedStyles.css file, which is loaded into the .xhtml page, in the epub package:
