Using a container for all content

From a newb: I am looking for the safest CSS layout. I am thinking of a container div and putting all my other divs (masthead,content,colums, footer, etc.) inside of it. This seems to me the safest, easiest way to layout a page. What do I not know that I should know about this type of layout, like why don't more people use it? And what positioning should I use? I was thinking a relative div for the container and absolute divs inside of that. I appreciate your help!

How to solve vertical alignment issues...?

Hello everyone!

I'll try my best to explain what I mean. I hope this makes sense:

I have had som trouble getting my site layout to work.

I've used absolute positioning with a 50% value for top and left alignment, and then used a negative margins to center the whole site.

The problem is that in a small window the content doesn't stop at the top and left corner, but instead it proceeds out of the frame...

Is there any way too solve this?


Columns jumping in IE

I am working on a web site and, naturally, I'm having problems with IE compatibility. So far, I have been unable to find anyone else having this problem. When viewed in the latest version of IE, everything renders correctly through the header and into the first column, but when it gets to the first link, it forces it into the next column, after which everything flows normally until the next section where the cycle repeats.

Can anyone think of a reason this might be happening. Everything validates in the W3C validator, and works perfectly in Firefox, Opera, and Safari.
