Mine too, and also a newbie to FO :)

I have had a similar problem.

I have had to resort to a table to distribute three blocks of text and
one of a graphic evenly.
I am looking for a better method, if I find one I will post here.

I originally had two columns to do this, but also need a full page
background (or as near as possible) and haven't been able to achive this
with columns.

I have had to end up with a single column page with a large table to
distribute the columns evenly and nest tables in this to distribute the
content within it.

I know this is a very HTML solution, but time pressures have prevailed
and that is what I am stuck with at the moment.

Any advice on how to better structure this sort of thing would be great.

Thanks,

Rob Smith
