You don't need to use a table if you use layers. You can make the layer
the size you want and then type in your data. The advantage of layers is
that they can overlap each other. I did the dreamweaver tutorial at
macromedia to learn about layers. It is really easy and makes your site
very easy to put together. The best thing is that you have much more
control over how everything looks. You do not have to worry about cell
padding or trying to get text to stay put. The layer handles all of that.
