Elements with same atttributes are differenly positioned on my page

(OP)
Hi everyone,
My page contains 2 elements with identical attributes' values but they are differently positioned on the page !
My code:

CODE

<!doctype>
<html>
<head>
<style>
<style type="text/css">
	{
		margin: 0;
		padding: 0;
		border: 0;
		font-size: 100%;
		font: inherit;
		vertical-align: baseline;
	}
	.first {position: relative;border:1px solid red; width:70%; max-width:70%; height: 50%; max-height:50%; margin-left:15%;top:30%;}
	.second {position: absolute;border:1px solid green; width:70%; max-width:70%; height: 50%; max-height:50%; margin-left:15%;top:30%;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<p class = "first">abcd</p>
<p class = "second">abcd</p>
</body>
</html> 
This is what the page looks like:

Could anyone help me positioning the second element so it will overlap the first?

RE: Elements with same atttributes are differenly positioned on my page

one is 'relatve' the other is 'absolute'

that's the way it works.
