I tried the 'holy grail' layout and was left unimpressed.  It is way too 
complex and I found that it didn't behave very well.  I wanted links to 
anchors in a page to jump down to a different section, with the 'holy 
grail' CSS this is broken.  I would be against anything based on it.

Having said that, I can find no clean way of doing a three column 
*fluid* layout in CSS which has fixed size left and right columns and a 
fluid centre column and which also permits floats in the centre column 
(i.e., the centre column itself has to be floated to start a new float 
context).  The only method I have found is the one used on drupal.org 
where the left and right columns are percentages of the width.
