I'm still new to (La)TeX, so I don't know if this is a good, or even a right, question to ask.
Anyways, when I use default classes, the layout always looks something like the one on the left (image). Is it possible to add more boxes and remove existing ones (maybe the header and footer) and make a crazy layout like the one on the right? Basically, how do I acquire ABSOLUTE control over the layout?
Where is this default layout defined? I imagine, I could learn a lot by studying the code.
Probably gonna be a lot of work. Fortunately I got nothing but time these days.
