    Here you can see the layout I have created. I've started the coding, but I don't think I'm going about it correctly (btw The colours are just to identify the different boxes).

    I used relative to position 2 boxes side-by-side, and when they were aligned, the space where they would of existed in the normal flow was still taken up. Why is that?

    How do you go about getting 2 or more divs along side eachother horizontally?

    If you could take the time, maybe if you're bored, PM me and you can help me over MSN. Alternatively, if someone could use 'Paint' and just write on how the boxes should be positioned correctly.

    Thanks in advance...

    The maroon and blue coloured boxes can be floated left and right respectively. The inner pale box would also need to be given a float value because the flow gets disrupted, for the very same reason you could use clear on the main header to maintain itís positioning.

    .box {

    float: left; /* or right */


    #header {

    clear: both;

    Stop thinking in rows and colums. With tables, everything need to line up with borders all in line. With css, you can be more creative than that.
