I don't see why it requires absolute positioning.

you might have problems with IE5 on Mac for different reasons - it's  
notoriously difficult to please IE5 on the mac when you're pushing the CSS  
envelope, but the layout in your jpg should be quite simple to do.  I bet  
you're not paying your xhtml coder enough.


if he's wroking for free and you really want IE5 mac support then tell him  
it's a great learning opportunity.

I'm not sure how many people are actively designing to support IE5 on Mac,  
I for one code to web standards and hope for the best...  (I usually tweak  
for IE6 so it doesn't look too weird)
