I have given you the answer on this question http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/CSS/Q_28146701.html#a39224595

You will have to write your own code, but in simple form if you have a table
<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>

Open in new window

You can convert to all div's by using a grid system.  In this case I am  using bootstrap. http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/index.html 
<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>
