I am trying to design a new website. But I don't know how to control & fix the navigation, left side, main content & footer. If I fix one page the other goes crazy( navigation, left side, main content & footer). Do I've to write diffrent css'es for diffrent pages? I am uploading the zip files including images with this question.
Any help, comments and feedback would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I’d recommend you to stay away from absolute positioning and switch to standard flow. Place the images as backgrounds into CSS. Rearrange your DIVs to the proper sequence:


This way you end up with less and much cleaner markup. Take a look at (for CSS layouts it’s a good starting point).

See the attached files... All is fixed...

I added borders just so you could see the CSS structure - To remove them, simply go into the CSS and set the border: 0px

Let me know if this helps...

If attached a browser back-compatible version - so it looks almost identically in all MSIE versions back to version 6.
Also firefox looks good. Didn't test other browsers.

Attached version is also W3C-conform, if you add 2 alt-text to the navigation and main image tags.

Another problem in all prior versions - linking the style sheet should be placed within the head-section!

Hi Mars,
Its look like the text issue has been resolved, my mistake. The only issue is why the background image coming slightly over the top image.
