Tableless css web 2.0 layout

hi folks, been a while since I been around these parts but I hope someone can help me with this new job I’ve been given.

it was requested upon me to create a fairly web 2.0ish design using tableless css. doing some research into web 2.0ish designs I found sites like and others that show information by calling dynamic data. this makes me think that I just need to make containers, and the content will be called in like with a content management system?

the tableless css bit I’m clueless still to, even after searches and readings.

any help would be most appreciated,
