Looking for a tool to generate complex CSS layout.

I am looking for a tool which will allow me to create a webpage which has a floating rectangle on the left of the page and a 5*5 grid of elements to the right hand side of the page.

I imagine that a tool must exist which would allow me to add divs, size them and position them with a sort of drag and drop interface, generate the css and kindly allow me to download it.

Searches have been fruitless. Preferable the tool would be only but if not I should say that I am on Windows 7

Since asking the question I continued the search and while I didn't find the tool I did find a page which will allow me to create the layout I was looking for. Also it has the bonus of being a card sort which is ultimately what I was looking for. I was saving the draggable stuff for my next question.

Anyway here is the page in question.

You could check out CSS grid frameworks like 960 or Blueprint. Even Twitter Bootstrap has a scaffolding section that provides a lot of details regarding how to setup a grid.

Glad you found your solution though.
