I'm wondering, why CSS doesn't just work with X and Y position instead
of those margins, would solve a lot of problems and frustrations here ;)

When you understand that, you have taken a considerable step towards
understanding what CSS, and Web authoring, is about.

As a starter, consider checking the entry on font sizes in the FAQ
and thinking how well pixel coordinates and em or % units mix together.

And introduce new ones that are far greater. Instead of a fixed
'picture', try to see a webpage as a river that can be guided by means
of CSS.

CSS does have X and Y, except they're called Left and Top. Their use is
somewhat limited though, as you should strive for "fluid" designs rather
than fixed ones.
