Why yes, there is. Your page fairly screams "Un-table me!".
All the content can be placed in a single div, and that div
may be given suitable side margins, which will allow a liquid
layout. However, in some browsers top and bottom margins are
more tricky, due to bugs. Or you may make the box
'position:absolute', and apply left, right, top, and bottom
values to suit. Again a liquid layout.
Those fancy border embellishments are something I'm not too
familiar with, but here's a link to someone who does it pretty well:
Not a demo page, sorry. Perhaps someone can supply a better one?
I suggest that you work up an all CSS version of your page,
and when (not if) you have problems, the list is always here. :]
