If you are looking for some of the slickest CSS web-design stuff around, look no further. This man has put together some of the best stuff I have seen. He writes in an easy to understand and follow format, and explains very well what is happening behind the scenes.
His designs are all diagrammed in separate colors, so you can easily follow his at-first-seemingly-complex nested structures, but once you have looked into the inner workings of a few of them, you will see that they mostly follow a common concept, involving one more level of DIV tags then you would think.
I had been playing around with similar concepts of mutliple column page structures, and the positioning was driving me nuts! After checking his concepts and designs – it is all becoming clearer now. I was using one too few DIVs and had made some pretty basic positioning mistakes.
My kudos go out to this CSS wizard! Check him out. You can download templates, or just read his articles. Great site.
