    Check it: currently I use something of a "div" overlay structure to achieve the layout of my site.

    The result of this is that I have to position all my navigation and images absolutely.

    It works, but you think it would be better if I set up more a "three column" div structure? Is this a more optimal way to structure my page you think?

    If you think I should set up a three column structure do you know of any tutorials out there on how to do this? I'm assuming your just float three divisions to line up like 3 columns?

    It's definitely better not to absolutely position things. However, columned layouts are a huge pai, since you run into a height issue -- i.e., how do you maintain an equal height for all three columns?

    The best solution so far seems to be faux columns.

    The columns are positioned absolutely, only the images and navagation elements within them. So the content window still adjusts as more text is added, etc. But none of the aformentioned elements are easy to move around.
