Your best bet is to use a grid system.  I like http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/index.html or http://foundation.zurb.com/  In addition to their grid, there a lot of other goodies to make it easy to account for multiple devices.  If you want something more straight forward http://blueprintcss.org is just an easy grid, nothing fancy.

It works like this.
<div class="span12">I'm a header</div>
<div class="span12">
    <div class="span4">Left side</div>
    <div class="span4">The Man In Middle - 23</div>
    <div class="span4">Right Side</div>
</div>
<div class="span12">I'm a footer</div>

Open in new window


The core of the grid is simply adding a float:left and padding right to each div.  Each number 1-12 has it's own width.  Grids come in more then 12 columns but 12 seems to be the thing right now.  I think blueprint is 24.  It's color by numbers.

I'm not going to write your code for you. I can help you with questions.

If you have a table that has 3 rows where the top is the header, the middle is 3 columns and the bottom is a footer you end up with:
<table>
<tr><td colspan="3">header</td></tr>
<tr><td>left</td><td>middle</td><td>right</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="3">footer</td></tr>
</table>

This table match's my code above.

Just take it in parts.  I would strongly suggest learning on a site like http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/web or http://www.w3schools.com/html/ and spend a couple of hours.  I would also suggest starting with blueprint as that will be easier.  But first learn the basics.
