Understanding CSS Layout

Unlike table layout, CSS layout allows the content to remain completely separate from the layout. At its most basic level, a page that renders by using CSS looks like a text file with div tags and lists. Each tag contains an attribute value that references a style, and that style is contained in a CSS block or CSS page that holds the information for how that tag should be formatted. What this means in practice is that you can cause the same content to lay out in myriad different ways simply by changing the CSS file that is attached to it.
