    Why not just simply write the site to fit to 800x600 and be done with it? That's how a lot of sites do their things (ZDNet, for instance). On 640x480 you have to scroll, and on 1024x768 you get space at the sides.

    Design a site for the lower resolution users!! bad examples of web site design is http://uk.php.net Notice how in lower resolutions you have to scroll to the right?? They could have solved this by having the cells fit a certaoin percentage of the screen! This means all resolutions have a good deal!
