I'm studying sites I find aesthetically appealing in order to improve my design ability. Could someone please look at the site below and tell me how the designer created the main green page rectangle, and the brown and black interior rectangles:

Did he uses divs? If he inserted a graphic in that main green div, how did he then put text and graphics on a graphic?

Thanks!

if you like the design dont look to carefully how this example was created , but try to replicate it your self using divs , not the mix of divs and tables here.
some pouints that may help you though.
if you use a background image you can add text over it.
if in a div you add absolute positioned divs you can place that where yo want relative to the parent div edges
in that absolute div that could also have an image inserted or as a back ground.
with that i would say you can get what you have here in you example
