Tip for using on non-quirks mode page with <!doctype html> set.

The moveRight function is using style.left to position a token with an absolutely positioned parent. This requires units to work when doctype is properly declared and the browser isn't in quirks mode. See adjusted code below.

moveRight(columns) {
        if (this.columnLocation < columns - 1) {
            console.log(this.offsetLeft);
            this.htmlToken.style.left = this.offsetLeft + 76 + "px"; //include units here
            this.columnLocation += 1;
        }
    }
