    Hey, I am a beginner at css and i had few doubts over designing layouts.
    1) I have read several tutorials on layouts and each tutorial recommends a different technique, Using floats, absolute and relative positioning and there is this fluid layouts, fixed and elastic layouts . Which is the best technique that is cross-browser compatible, which does not break my layouts on zooming in and can be viewed on smaller devices. Also do recommmend any tutorials which can clear all these doubts.

    2)Should I specify the widths on all block elements or only a selected few? Suppose i specify

    width: 780px;

    then, is it gonna show properly on mobile devices? or should I specify widths in em’s or percentages?

    Any help regarding this is appreciated.


    Thank you for the link, it was a good resource. But what about my first doubt? how to achieve fixed, fluid and elastic layouts? and what’s the difference between them?
