CSS: Reset property "position"

Question by Compi | 21/02/2016 at 11:33

I have created a class within and external stylesheet in which I have declared some CSS properties.

However, I would like to reset some of those properties to their defaults on one of my HTML pages using Inline-CSS. Among others, this also applies to the property "position". In my external stylesheet, I have set "position" to "fixed" and now I would like to reset it to its default behavior.

But what actually is the default value for "position"? I can exclude the values "absolute", "relative" and "fixed". So, should I reset to "initial", "inherit" or "static" to restore the default? I cannot see any difference between them.

The default property of "position" is "static".

So, you can change your HTML in the following way:

<div class="myclass" style="position:static">

This overwrites the "position" that might be defined in "myclass" with the default value.
