While the others have given you accurate information about how AP
works, I should suggest that for laying out major elements of the page
you stick to floats and margins.  They are easier to work with and
easier to understand, although there are some snags, especially with
IE and you have to learn how to make a floated element enclose it's
children, which it won't by default.

AP is great for positioning elements for special effect, but using it
to lay out major divisions on your page is pretty complicated and with
floats and margins  your browser and it's normal flow will do much of
the work for you.
