I'm not a pro but it seems to me that the most important thing is to first
get a grasp of CSS positioning -- normal, relative, float, absolute. After
you know how that works in a standards compliant browser then you can start
tweaking your page with hacks to make it look right in the other browsers
you want to accomodate.
