Message In theory, we should be able to create a document that separates content
into layout groups, then provide CSS to put the group where we want it
on the screen. Within a layout group we should event be able to have
sub-layouts. Of course what can really be done will be limited by
Internet Explorer because no only is it not fully compliant, it is
actually broken in several cases. :-(

I've attached an example. It was originally done with pure CSS, and
it's still driven by CSS but the programming is needed to set formatting
for selectors that IE is too stoopid to detect.
