This site is really cool. I am not sure if position=absolute works on
any browser. But using <div> to group blocks is really great.

In this case, you probably should keep the entire layout in hardcoded
php-files, which then can be included in the proper format strings:
$HandleBrowseFmt = array (
The file Main_Browse.php may look like:
<?php PrintFmt($pagename, "wiki:\$Group.WebMenu Main.WebMenu");?>
<?php PrintFmt($pagename, "function:PrintText");?>
Does that help in the right direction?
PmWiki is amazingly flexible in the approaches ...
