Frankly, I’m of the opinion that the use of positioning should be limited to ‘special’ effects that can’t be done any other way.

Using them to position everything means, IMO, that the coder hasn’t grasped the proper way HTML flows.

Also, they are a b*tch to maintain / update.

On looking at the link given, there is really nothing in there that requires any element positioning at all. A couple of floats maybe (which isn’t the same thing) but otherwise, nada.
