When you increase the text size a few (say 3 times) in firefox, the
design explodes (really).

If it were a css-design the text resizing would not be that much pain.

imho, since your containers are mostly fixed-width your table design
could be mocked up with a css counterpart.

Of course you know that design is an incremental process:
You can start by creating main container, a header div, a footer div,
a related content div (side navigation), a main content div. so on and
so forth...

Obviously it will take more time than a table design but it is not
that hard i suppose.

There are tons of css-related resources out there along with sites
aggragating those piles of resources on a single place. To list some:
