What are the CSS properties that get elements out of the normal flow?

Only the following properties affects the normal flow of any given element:

  • float: right|left
  • position: absolute|fixed

Just for completeness:

  • display: none removes the element from the flow (strictly speaking the element will not have a flow order)

  • position: relative does not change the flow order of the element, but changes its position relative to the normal flow position.

  • visibility: hidden will maintain the element on the flow but will not render it to the viewport.
