Now that we have semi-compatible browsers (Firefox, IE7, Safari, Opera), using ccascading style sheets is even starting to be fun, but does not come without hours and hours of frustration leaving floats, etc. Advice for web developers: learning something about CSS every day.

How to absolutely position DIVs inside a relatively positioned DIV
I needed to have a centered web-2.0-looking site that had a number of centered sections (e.g. header, body, footer) and in each of these sections needed to be absolutely position elements. Here is some clean HTML/CSS to get you started.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://data.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title>Title</title>

<style type="text/css">

body {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 10px;
}

#headerArea {
    position: relative;
    background: yellow;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 760px;
    height: 150px;
}

#headerArea div {
    position: absolute;
}

#logo {
    top: 20px;
    left: 20px;
    background: orange;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 32pt;
    width: 150px;
    padding: 10px;
}

#menu {
    top: 20px;
    right: 20px;
    background: tomato;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 14pt;
    width: 240px;
    padding: 10px;
}


#line {
    top: 80px;
    left: 20px;
    width: 720px;
    border-top: 1px solid blue;
}

#title {
    top: 90px;
    right: 20px;
    font-style: italic;
    font-size: 14pt;
}

</style>

</head>

<body>
    <div id="headerArea">
        <div id="line"></div>
        <div id="logo">LOGO</div>
        <div id="menu">One Two Three Four Five</div>
        <div id="title">This is the Title a Bit Longer</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>
