I like the layout/look of the following site:

http://aceh.mercycorps.org/

It uses Mambo, however i'd like to create something similar using html/css.

How would I get the content section to extend depending on the size of the content in there? Just use a div with no max height setting?

And to keep the navigation in the same place I guess i'd use a absoloute div?

Cheers for the help.

No problem there, the layout isn't complex at all.

As long as the DIV isn't given a fixed height it will expand to fit the content.

No, the navigation would/should use an unordered list as its structure. The A/LI elements can be styled to be very similar to what they have.

The DIV that surrounds the menu wouldn't need to be absolutely positioned. A float would suffice inside a a master containing DIV.

Mambo's just a CMS, you can design your own templates for it so implement almost any design using CSS :) Only downside, they use some tables.
