- Complex layouts can be hell to code by hand, especially when you're dealing with tables (and nested tables and col/rowspan'ing).

But you shouldn't do that, unless you still need to support Netscape 4...
I agree though that it might be very handy to have a tool to graphically design layouts. However, since NVu doesn't seem to have layer (div) support, it makes it a non-starter for me. ;)
I would love to have a WYSIWYG web layout application for Linux which is entirely based on CSS and the ideology behind it. Probably something like Layout Master (http://www.westciv.com/layout_master/index.html). I don't know that app but it looks to be pretty much what I'm looking for. It is really tedious to design such layouts by hand, always adjusting values, checking the effect, tweaking a little more, etc...
