I have been reading a lot about css-p recently. All the examples I have seen for laying out a page using only css are quite straightforward (design-wise, I mean). An example is the template that was supplied by gmcrone http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=249 ('http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=249')

I certainly don't mean any disrespect, as I think they are great for cetain applications.

I would like to know however, if more graphic-intensive designs can be achieved with css-p. Can, for example a design such as this http://www.leschambres.co.za/aboutUs.htm ('http://www.leschambres.co.za/aboutUs.htm') be achieved using only css?

I have tried laying out the complete page using position: absolute; and the exact co-ordinates, but this inevitably causes problems when I need a larger 'cell' for additional text (this test page had a 'footer' div below the mainContent div).

Another seemingly insurmountable (only for me) problem is in trying to create an expanding page, with two graphics, one that will align left and the 2nd (horizontally alongside) that will align right.

Any advice or good sites to visit?

Thanks,

Coober

Although I have been able to create a 'stand-alone' page with this method, I want to create a page that I can use as a template for several other pages, hence the need to accommodate varying amounts of text.
