Remember that the containing block of an absolutely positioned element is not necessarily its parent element. In fact, it often is not, unless the author takes steps to correct this situation. Fortunately, that's easy to do. Just pick the element that you want to use as the containing block for the absolutely positioned element, and give it a position of relative with no offsets. Thus:

P.contain {position: relative;}
