    Use CSS and margin-left, margin-right etc.
    I am non-committal, feigning blasť.

    CSS isn't supported by older browsers but it is the new standard...vB3 is using it everywhere.

    I consider layers to be a lower level of hell than tables

    Mainly browser-compatibilty: in my experience layers vary practically as much between browsers as advanced Javascript. Tables (with the exception of NS4 which almost nobody uses anymore and Opera) render identically in all browsers nowadays.

    That's true, tables are more consistent...however, they do not reflect the nature of the Web. I'm sure you've been over this once or a hundred times - but think of how many devices are accessing your content. How many display types are accessing your environment, I just see CSS as one vehicle to disseminate that information to as wide an audience as possible.

    Not only that, but I realize that my style cannot be reproduced on any two systems- but I can come close and cater to the majority while my information is received by all systems. You can cut down website code by half simply by using CSS and more by cutting out tables- lotz of arguments neither here nor there.

    Anyway- I'm not saying that CSS is the only path to freedom, it's not- but I think in general a combination of stylesheets is important- as well as pulling your data out of tables -- except for tabular data that's meant for tables.
