How are CSS frameworks used?

Tags: css,frameworks

Problem :

For some reason, it never dawned on me that there could be frameworks for CSS. I have been working on my own personal site, and I just really hate 'designing' with CSS (I think more then a few programmers might agree with me). Anyways, I understand the benefits of a framework for a language such as Java, PHP, [insert language]. I downloaded a couple different CSS frameworks and couldnt really figure out how to use them. I guess I might be expecting an API or something (which obviously doesnt make sense given the lack of logic in CSS)...

Has anyone here used (and would reccomend) a CSS framework? Is it overkill for a relatively simple layout?

Please do not post links to other sites, I know how to use Google. I would rather hear the opinions and insights of the community. Thanks.
