Orion, I'm confused.

Here's why.

1.) you tell me that you can't do "insert whatever here"

2.) I give you the css to do it.

3.) you tell me that you don't care about the specific case, but all cases.

4.) The way in which you intend to write your new layout language is really
no different than simply making all of your layout regions divs that's
direct parent is the body, and then you just place a:

position:absolute;
top:whatever;
left:whatever;
width:whatever;
height:whatever;

on them which is really no different from your system that you're proposing
(if I understand it correctly) and the only thing we're missing is a little
z-indexing which your system would have needed as well.  So... please
advise... where'd I miss the boat?
