Absolute positioning with relative length units. How to prevent issues?

I will find issues if I apply absolute positioning to the navigation links but give the header a relative length unit of 100%.

The header will expand thicker but the links will always be Xpx away from the top-left corner. How to solve that problem?

Why do the anchor links need to be positioned absolutely? It seems they shouldn't be. If you can find a solution to position them statically, or relatively.

Hey Henrique,

It would be great to see some code here to get a better sense of what you're doing / what you're trying to achieve.

Best, Alex
