Dynamic Drive: CSS Layout Library
If you are still having problems with CSS, here is a library of templates to help you build you fluid or fixed site.
When I first started out using CSS, I became frustrated and continued using tables for layout instead.
One day, I just buckled down and tried to learned CSS. After understanding it was the browsers and not me, I came to the conclusion that it was a black art. ;-)
Now, that's all I use.
For those who are still wrestling with CSS, Dynamic Drive has a great library of pre-made library of CSS templates. This should help out immensely.
