CSS layout is hard work, and, yes, shoehorning in wildly varying content
into a given CSS layout isn't always reliable. You just gotta keep an eye
out and give us a holler when things break.

Well, although CSS is definitely up for the job of multi-column layout
(display:table and display:table-cell make it cake), non-compliant browsers
remain a PITA. If CSS layout isn't working for you, using a single stripped
down table for page layout isn't going to make your pages invalid or
inaccessible, just be aware of the limitations of it.
