Hello Chris,

It's good to see that the examples include negative values for positioning.
(There seems to have been some concern over the negative margins
implementation in Internet Explorer.)

When overlapping is specified, can all of the overlapped elements be
visible?  For example, three overlapped img elements.

|           | the text can wrap

---------|            | the 
images.  |            | Especially

text is specific  |            |
 to the group of  |            |
images.           --------------

I hope this example is relevant (and readable <g>).  If it isn't readable,
then try a fixed font.
