    Div Tag Vs. AP Div plz

      Hi,

      I'm new to dreamweaver and I have a simple quick question: Why is it better to use div tags to design a web page instead of AP Divs? I have a dreamweaver manual that says "AP Divs are not layout heaven. AP Divs are difficult to control with precision... if a visitor increases the font size in the browser, the text may spill out of your layout... In addition, it is nearly impossible to force a footer to the bottom of the page that's laid out using AP positioning."

      I thought that the "rule definition" box in css properties allowed you to create very precise layouts but I guess there's something I don't know and the author of my book does.

      Thanks,
