If it is layout boxes use CSS

If you have tabulature data then use tables

If you need drop downs and text boxes use forms


Without particulars thats a pretty open-ended question....

Thats still a little vague...

Are you talking about the header area? Thats part of the forum software and I believe IPB uses tables (it does, I just looked at the source of this page).

a table is simple:
<table border="1">
  <tr>
	<td>YOUR DATA HERE</td>
  </tr>
</table>

This will make a full width "box" that has a 1px visible border.

Again, it is HIGHLY recommended that you not use tables for layout but use CSS instead. (Do a Google search on CSS and box models).
