Dear JWP, you can do everything you need with CSS, using combinations of positions, width, margins, paddings, etc. I will not bother you more, but specifically for the nav-bar thing you should state its width of the size of the spacer and in pixels (not percentages) , that way if the screen is 640x480 or its split with a panel/hotlist/whatever, the fixed width will keep the nav-bar together. Hope this helps.
