[TYPO3] Mapping Content Element to Template

It would be easier to understand what you were wanting to do if you 
explained it a little more.

If you are using a tableless design I am guessing you are using the 
Templavoila extension for mapping content to your template.  Is this 
correct?  If so, use TV to select div 1, 2, 3 and 4 as places to insert your 
data.  Then if you need a very specific element like an about our staff page 
use a FCE (flexible content element) to insert the particular kind of 
element in any of the four content areas.

<div id="container">
  <!-- FCE for creating a list of staff members -->
  <div id="element1">
    <div class="staff-member">
      <div class="staff-name">
      <div class="staff-email">
      <div class="staff-phone">
  <div id="element2">
  <div id="element3">
  <div id="element4">
