It breaks up very much if the viewers resolution is different from the original.
If you give a div a left margin of 1000px and the viewer is using 800x600; the result will be a bit of a disaster. Having said that, absolute positioning has its place if you are careful how you use it.
In a closed system where there is complete control of the viewing monitors, it is obviously OK.
