Simple layout question

Hey guys,

I last made a site using Asp.net in vis studio 2003.

Now in 2005 and .net 2 i want to make anothe rbut i cant get the layour
working. Before i used to make eveyrhting position absolute and just drag
and drop where i wanted things to go and this worked great cross browser,
looked same on all machines i was happy.

In Vis studio 2005 i can't do this? Even when i make the div position
absolute? Am i doing something wrong, is it not possible for the drag and
drop layout method now? If so how do you create complex layouts?

Thanks

Why not? There anything wrong with grid layout?

P.S. i found by adding grid layout line to the body it works as i wanted.

grid layout only worked for for the machine the layout is done on. even
when all users use IE, screen resolutions and font sizes caused problems.

to see an example, using desktop properties->Apperance->Font size, pick
large or extra large, then view your old grid based site.
