if I understand you correctly you want to "absolutely" position stuff
*relative* to your containing TD (as opposed to the 0,0 top left of the
window canvas area). 

That's a little tricky.. 
In IE if you can set 0,0 within the flow of a document by creating a div
with position:absolute .. without a top and left value. Then stuff
inside can be positioned absolutely, within this container. 
But as i recall NN4 has a completely different take on the matter, and
you're probably going to be right out of hair by the time you're done
patching together something cross browser.
