APDivs (formerly called Layers) are NOT the best approach for this. Here's why:
1) Find a good, CSS layout to start your project with.
2) Precise alignment of text on a complicated background image is futile. This is a print concept that won't hold up on web pages because you can't control browser settings, screen or text sizes.
3) Height is a restriction in all browsers except IE. Don't use height values on containers with text inside them as this will invariably cause failures when text size is increased or amount of content exceeds available space.
4) If needed to show a background image, use the CSS min-height property.

I think you bailed me out before! As much as I hate to, I think you've clearly showed that I have to start over for the most part. I'm so used to building in tables I could do it in my sleep in FP. Everything you provided me with is most helpful and explains each step of what I must do. In this case I have no choice but to use the background as he is emotionally attached to his grandfathers tools in the images we did. And CSS is rather new to me. I used to be a production manager so I rarely got my hands dirty so to speak, but now I do it for fun, but its not fun since I switched! LOL.
