That's basically because designers have sadly learned to restrict their 
layout thinking to what is possible on a sheet of paper or Photoshop, 
or, very differently, HTML tables. In the former two cases the coder 
needs to ask them, which parts have to be flexible or depend how on 
what, in the latter case, usually after a small clean-up of several old 
dirty tricks, CSS provides the same, but implementations don't.
