Design a proper UI for the web page

I would like to know what is the proper way to design an ASP.NET page? Example, should there a div, or a panel be placed first as a base, and what method is used to divide page into sections, etc. Which containers are used in some situation? I presume there is some design pattern (or template) to achieve this properly?

Will designing an ASP.NET differ from designing a PHP page?

Its exactly same as PHP page design ... difference PHP uses html control .. in you can user server control ... also if you wanted to use master page than .. its bit different than php .. else its similar.

for proper way to design .. use Table ... that would help you to organise your page in proper way.
for master page refer this

Hello, guys, thanks for the resposne. I was very busy these days, so I didnt have time to look at the links thoroughly. I will look at it somewhere in the future, but I will award you the points. Before I do, I need to know one last thing:

What should be used as a today standard: div or table? This is my main problem. With table its so much easier, but I see more and more people propagating div. When I tried creating one static page with Dreamweaver, using divs, after 2-3 hours working at the designer, I found it so difficult to organize things, that I moved to code, and added divs manually, and it was much easier. I guess using designer should be easier, so most probably I missed something.

So, what is the better practice to use: divs or table?

My choice would be use DIV because it loads very faster and best choice for seo etc.,.... now a days, most of the web pages are used DIV based design. It is also applicable to Web 2.0, 3.0 ...
