CSS is your friend

It seems that, along with everyone else, I have been experiementing with redesigning my site using strictly CSS for positioning. This takes me back to the days of hand coding HTML and not really being sure of what you were going to get.

I started sketching and had the idea to use some of the images that I have been posting in my other log as imagery for everything - I am using an SSI call to refresh the main sidebar image everytime you come to the page. Then I saw that EH was thinking about redesign and suddenly there everyone was doing the CSS thing.

Comments are - as always - welcome. I have looked at these pages in IE5 (Mac), NS 6 (Mac), Opera (Mac), NS 4(Mac - layout doesn't come through - but you can read everything), IE 5 (PC) and NS 6 (PC). So far so good. Let me know what you think. I have a lot of pages on the site - so it will be awhile before everything is implemented.
