Saw this message (and another about cellspacing / centering / etc.) and
thought I'd whip up a VERY quick page.

http://www.marcdavidjohnson.com/centest.htm

This page uses 4 images, text, etc. and NO TABLES (tables should be reserved
for laying out data, not for laying out a page). CSS has the ability to
'kiss' (push elements together) images, divs, etc. as you can see by the
source of the page. Now, if anyone has any questions about the code or needs
the example expanded in scope, let me know.

Hope that helps,
