Visual Studio 2005 - How to Create Panel with Panel Grid

I just converted from Visual Studio 2003 to Visual Studio 2005.  I'm using VS to develop ASP.Net web applications.  In VS 2003 I would drag a Panel onto a page from the Web Forms Toolbox then drag a  Grid Layout Panel from the HTML Toolbox and place it inside the Panel.  This allowed me to use absolute positioning of objects within the panel.

In Visual Studio 2005 there is no Grid Layout Panel under the HTML Toolbox.

My question is, "How do I use VS 2005 (for ASP.Net web pages) to create a panel that allows absolute positioning of objects within the panel?

Here is a good article about grid/flow layout in VS 2005: http://blogs.msdn.com/bencon/archive/2004/08/02/206383.aspx

You can also go to Tools - Options - HTML Designer - CSS Positioning - Positioning Options and try different settings.

Thanks, I also found that you can go to Layout on the menu, choose Position, then set to position of the Panel to Absolute.  Once you do this, you can set objects in Abosolute positions within the Panel just like you can in VS 2003, but you do not need to add the Grid Layout Panel as in VS 2003.
