Can you code website layouts somewhat but still get stuck like me?
Looking for tips for fast loading web pages with style? I found great CSS & general design advice from an artist named Matthew James Taylor. I especially appreciate his instructions for Perfect multi-column CSS liquid layouts - iPhone compatible
This series of website layouts use percentage widths and relative positioning, and they work with all the common web browsers including Safari on the iPhone and iPod touch. They're also 'stackable' so you can use multiple column types on the one page. This makes the number of possible layouts endless!

Taylor layouts are the foundation for several of my sites, and yes they show pretty good on the iPhone too.

I do not own an iPhone or any comparable handheld device.
I noticed [i.e. in my log analysis] a small portion of iPhone users have looked at my sites.
Some of my sites are clunky
In my quest for advice on better design, I "discovered" Taylor layouts tonight.
Thank you for letting me know that these designs will certainly be an improvement upon anything I presently have

Ha! I've been using the 2 Column (Right Menu) Liquid Layout since I started my site in 2000. To me it just made sense to have the navigation bar on the right so people didn't have to cross the screen to use it and it was right next to the drag bar, as well.
When I put my site up for review, the comment I received most often was that my navigation was on the wrong side of the screen. Funny how people just accept something as the way it has to be and don't think past to what might work better and more logically.
I have an iPhone, and so far I've never had trouble viewing any site I've visited on it no matter which format is used.

I have to re-create my sites using that theme
I've always used right hand navigation because people who read the English language read from left to right -- and that's my target audience
