The element's box is completely removed from the flow of the document and positioned with respect to its containing block. Whatever space the element might have occupied in the normal document flow is closed up, as though the element did not exist. The size and position of the element are defined by a combination of the properties height, width, top, right, bottom, and left, plus any margins, padding, and borders set for the element.
