I have two divs, one with position:absolute, and one with position:relative and padding-top:20px. In the first div there is a link. This link does not work, there are no hovering effects (no hand cursor) and it cannot be clicked. It seems to receive no mouse events at all. If I remove one of the position style rules, the link works again. It seems that the padding area of the second div is not transparent to events in this particular situation. In IE7 and Opera 9.2 this works as I would expect, the link can be clicked.
