Considering Web Browser Compatibility with Floating Boxes

By now you should be familiar with using tables (refer to Hour 6, “Designing Pages with Tables”) and GoLive's layout grids (refer to Hour 7, “Designing Pages with the Layout Grid”) to add structure and design to your Web pages. We've saved the coolest alternative for last. This technology is called layers—technically, DIV tags (DIV is the tag that Web browsers understand)—and GoLive calls them floating boxes. They allow unprecedented control and design possibilities.

After you have spent some time designing Web pages with tables and layout grids, you will probably become frustrated by some of the inherent limitations of these technologies. Two of the greatest frustrations will be the lack of exact control over where objects are placed on your Web page and the inability to stack objects on top of each other. The good news is that both of these limitations can be overcome with the use of floating boxes.
