Here is an article that outlines 10 of the most common, visually appealing CSS tips and techniques that are supported by most if not all browsers today. You can read the article at:

http://tech-resource.gotdns.com/resources/...op10csstips.php

Note that the example for #4 (tableless page layout) doesn't quite work right in Firefox 1.5.0.2 for Windows.
