    No no, layouts, not just colour scheme and font styles, actual positioning.

    IIRC W3C says the <body> should only contain the content of a page, not how it's displayed. CSS-layouts are a rather extreme use of this.

    Oh, I thought this was general knowledge... Look at http://jetser.its-s.tudelft.nl/~guus/ for example, it's something I was working on a few weeks ago. It's in dutch, and it's ugly as hell, but it's done primairily with CSS positioning.

    I'be been using nothing but actual positioning of DIVs since like -99. IE 4.0 supported it and that was enough for me.

    I must admit while CSS is great for colours and table styles etc, I've only used it in positioning on one site, and it was generated by JS to have a funky off-center effect

    CSS for positioning I use on and off. Mainly, I use it for things like, divisions that need to be equally spaced on a page, but is generated out of some kind of backend data files (database, flatfile, etc) and generally when there's lots.

    There's a lot of nifty stuff you can do with CSS positioning, it's worth checking out.

    I mainly use it for sizing divisions and etc.
