What I would do:
I want generate an HTML file who must produce a page with an header, a body and a footer.
In each part, elements are positionned with Absolute positionning of the CSS.
Each element (text box, table....) has styles defined with the CSS.
I don't want use the frames
It can be read with Netscape & Explorer
What I know:
Height of header and footer (but not body's height)
width of each part = 100 %
elements to define different styles (and of course their coordonates)
