HTML 4.01 spec recommends style sheets for visual formatting. However, I
find some difficulties in making use of CSS level 2. There are many features
that popular visual browsers do not support so far. It seems that style
sheets layers cannot totally replace the use of Table or Frame elements for
web page layout. Is there any design guideline for layout formatting? Could
you suggest any site as examples?

By the way, I notice that commercial sites rely extensively on visual
layout/ effects rather than providing a structured document for scientific
research. Is there any commercial site of valid htmls or good design in the
technical aspect? Any design guideline for this kind of application?

Thank you.
