    Lookin to redesign my theme a bit.. and I'm a complete CSS layout newb. What I have was mostly generated by some wizard thingy I found.

    Below is what I have so far (just placeholders). Displays as intended in Firefox, but slightly off in IE -- don't know about any other browsers. I'm sure it's something very simple, but I cant figure it out.

    "ads" and "headright" should be on the same line. The gray parts will both contain two pieces of my header image

    hmm it just struck me that maybe I should make the gray header thing one big rectangle and overlap the purple "ads" box in the bottom left corner instead of making 3 separate divisions?

    Yeah, that's probably the right way to do it (not that I know how, but can probably fig it out :)

    Your best approach is to find a theme that best matches what you want and then begin modifying it. This will get you familiar with how and why a style sheet does what it does. Once you can master that, you can then move on to design your own.

    That is excellent advise Robert, that is exactly what I am going to do.

    Yeah, working on finding a good working 3-col now.. It's pretty difficult getting em working correctly across browsers (which seems to be the consensus on the ol' interweb :) lots of hackin required)

    Just found this post. There is a small but cool collection of CSS XHTML layouts at http://www.alanwho.com/web-development/css/7-css-xhtml-11-layouts. I have been using them a lot lately. The best 3 column liquid there is this one.
