yes, mi CSS-P designed sites are always in the top results. Recently my girlfriend redesigned her private site from a table-based structure to full CSS positionning and structural markup, her site jumped from google depths to the first page for the same keywords one week later (without any new content).

If that isn't a good enough reason to switch, I don't know what is..... Now if I could just learn CSS. Any good tutorial sites (free) and maybe some scripts etc... Sticky me if you can't use the url.

I've done very well with CSS formatting. Sitepoint has an excellent book on it.

Do not get Sitepoint's CSS book. I repeat, do not get Sitepoint's CSS book. I looked at this post and then visited Sitepoint. I then decided to see how it was ranked on Amazon.com. Nearly everyone gave it terrible reviews saying it had nothing to do with the title. Buyer beware. You can check it out for yourself and confirm my information.

There are online tutorials that are great, don't spend money on books. Stickey me if you want those URLs.

While I have read neither Dan Shafer's, Eric Meyer's, nor any other CSS author's books, there is one really easy way to determine which CSS books you should buy.
Go to the author's home page and see how much CSS, and how many <table>s they have.
Resize the pages to see how well they reflow. Are they fluid?
Do they look good?
If you can't make any sense out of them, or they don't look clean, or they use tables (no matter how much they apologize), you probably shouldn't buy their books.
