CSS 2.x doesn't really address layout (a complex issue).

CSS2.x has some methods that could be used to create a layout, but none
are truly appropriate. Amongst those, using the float mechanism is imo
the most inappropriate. Not because there is something intrinsically
wrong with using a CSS method for a purpose for which it was not
designed, but because using floats to create a layout causes many
problems. 

CSS3 does aim to address layout.
