Haven't really had a good look yet, but I did notice your line break tags where wrong (you've used </br>)... they should be <br />

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...

Positioning? Layout? Please Help With This Problem

Hi lazyroll,
You have a nice design there but trying to emulate tables with divs will give you heart burn, so why not make a decision to make you design even cooler fluid and able to leap tall buildings or at least display in handheld devices.

OK I'll stop raving on.
There's two ways you could go here both involve floating.
So the big choice if you choose to do this, is between fixed width columns and percentage widths.
The difference being that the fixed widths will wrap the columns onto the level below earlier then the percentages.
There's nothing wrong with wrapping it is how fluid designs are meant to behave.
So fixed withs will wrap as soon as the columns can't all fit on the same horizontal plain. Where the widths of the percentage columns will continue to srink as far as they can before wrapping.

You can also add min-widths to the columns which works in most browsers apart from IE.

The choice is yours, if you choose to go down this path you will end up with a cool website that is fluid. It should be simple to develop and we will provide all the help we can.
