    I have two questions.

    1. I want a very simple site that loads quickly and with limited graphics. Given this, does CSS offer my site any benefits I wouldn't get otherwise?

    2. I want a 2 column format, like this http://bluerobot.com/web/layouts/layout2.html, except I'd like an area above the two columns where I'd place a headline (or two). This headline area would be a specific size, and not vary its size if there was more or less text. This way each subsequent page would look and line up the same. I'd also like to get rid of the horizonal banner and have it so that the text in the first and second panels are always aligned on the same horizonal plane.

    I don't think this is especially difficult but CSS sheets are really confusing for me. Any ideas on how I could do this?

    I hope this is clear and that I'm not asking too much. Thanks for your help.

    IF you want quicker loading times then CSS based designs load much quicker then a design that is full of tables. CSS is much easier to maintain then lots of tables, which to be honest is a nightmare. You should certainly go with CSS. I have started designing a lot more and have learnt a lot more about CSS and I now regret using tables in the first place and from now on the vast majority of the sites I design will be tabless designs that rely heavily on CSS.

    There are hundreds of articles on the internet that highlight the benefits of using CSS instead of tables.

    Macromedia have a good page about CSS that I advise you check out.

    Yes, CSS would benefit your site to no end. It would load faster and look a lot better. Check out www.webmonkey.com and www.alistapart.com to learn the thing.
