Should I use a grid for my new WordPress theme?

    I’m developing a complex newspaper style theme for WordPress. I want this theme to be customizable by many users (e.g. if I made it available to download).

    I’m torn as to whether or not I should go with a grid-based structure for this theme. Would that make it easier for end-users to change column widths, etc?

    Do grids work well on other platforms (e.g. mobile phones?) Do they validate?

    Or would it be better to avoid the grids altogether?

    I need your opinions, thanks!
