I'm redoing my website and was curious to a certain question. Is 800x600 still a default display setting or is the 1024x768 becoming more common. I ask this because I want to know if I should make two display versions of my site (which the user chooses on the main page)
Thanks for the poll feedback....

You can write a script to check that for you and store it in a report for later.
I'd say that most people still run in 800x600. I had a client (who I ended up not doing the site for) who was still running around in 640x480 and got pissed because her images were "too big."

i would still assume that 800x600 is most common...but it's not always necessary to code 2 separate pages...
what i do is code to 800x600 minimum and then using dynamic tables to fill up the screen for higher rez...
my header which can stretch as far a needed
this is a left hand menu which changes widths
this is my main content which is resticted to a width of 500

I'm just trying to figure out what's best to do....
Once I get the general template done, I'll better know what to do...

keep it simple just design for 800x600, larger displays wont distort it to horiblly long as ur code is nt based on %s of 800x600

Use percentages and * in your html so it resizes well... Don't use fixed values.

Depending on which machine I am using, my display ranges from 800x600 to 1280x1024. There are actually people at my work that still use 640x480. Untill everyone is using something bigger then a 17" monitor, I would stay with 800x600 coding.

I run 1024x768. That is becoming more commnly used. I believe it is the defualt on some flat screens, it was for mine. But it is still mainly the default. If you want, I can get a code for you that finds out what resolution you have and if its 800x600 it goes to the page for that, or 1024x768 it goes to a page for that.

Yeah, definetely when defining widths and heights for tables, frames...etc, percentages and wildcards are best, so the website isn't setting-specific...

And make sure the page is also Mozilla compatible
