Help create layouts from scratch?

Hi Michael,

I've read the book description and looked at the excerpts but I'm curious as to how you expect the book to be used by people like me.

Most of my time with html/css is spent adding features to existing sites. However, once or twice a year I need to build a new site from scratch. While I'm fairly comfortable with css, the thought of building a layout from scratch is a bit daunting. So... I usually find some css template or a layout that resembles what I want to do and I strip it down and reuse it.

That usually works for me, but when things go wrong it gets frustrating. Will your book help me create layouts from scratch? Also, since I (obviously) need to develop for multiple browsers/platforms, does your book teach in a way that will help minimize the amount of time tweaking and hacking for different browsers?
