I have an access database that i am converting to an ASPX page.

In my access form i had this below setup. for my form background i placed an image i designed in photoshop and just placed all the label, and invisible buttons right on top. I did this because i could get a much better looking form in my opinion

Access Browse Form
Well now i'm working on my ASPX version and im realizing its going to be hard to do that same format.
here is what i have done so far

I basically am setting everything based on my CSS stylesheet and not using any tables.

Is there a better way to do this? Or should i remove the body background image and put everything into a generic table?

CSS with spans and divs will be more flexible down the road. At risk of getting chewed out by fellow developers, tables are easier to understand if you're starting out. Using spans and divs is generally better for your site and considered cleaner code. You'll want to look into CSS positioning. http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_positioning.asp
