    I'm trying create a div nested inside of another div.   Each div has a contentplaceholder in it, but I can't get the div to display inside of the main div.   An example of what I'd like to do would be something easy like a header where there is a header div and inside of it is a logo div that I can position and move around.  I'm sure there's a way to do this in Sitefinity since it's standard practice when using divs and css. 

    sample code is below.  When I used this code it simply stacked the divs on top of each other in Sitefinity, but it did not allow me to access the parent div.

    <div id="content1"><asp:contentplaceholder id="Content1Background" runat="server" ><div class="content1Txt"><asp:contentplaceholder id="Content1Txt" runat="server" ></asp:contentplaceholder></div></asp:contentplaceholder></div>

    I've attached a simple screenshot of what I'm trying to achieve.

    Hi Troy Lawrence,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You should apply positioning rules for your divs. For tutorials on this you should take a look at the following link: CSS Positioning. You can play around with the top, left and right css properties to achieve the desired positioning of each div box.

    Best wishes,
