    Well, the only way I know of to accomplish this is to design in relative measurements, i.e. percentages, not in hard coded pixels. If you design in pixels, you'd basically have to have a different page for each browser. (If you're designing in XHTML/CSS, you'd simply need a different stylesheet for each page, which might be a little easier...)

    yeah if you create a design 800pixels wide, then it will always stay 800pixels wide.

    If you want a design to be full screen in all resolutions, then you have to make your main table with 100% and not 800pixels, which, if your site is fully designed in a graphical program, could mean many changes have to be made and background images created/set.

    I would recommed setting absolute pixek widths and not percentage widths if your site is very graphical, or maybe its just a personal preference

    Why not leave it as a fixed width? If you have too much invested in the site it will be a messy matter to change it, and most people don't mind a fixed-width site.

    I agree, people these days are used to seeing it at 800x600. A lot of people do not even browse with their window at full screen unless the are on like a 15" or 17" monitor (which I know is a lot). Think about your sites visitors. What kind of monitors/resolutions do you think they are using. If it it makes sense to leabe it as is for your audience, don't try and change it b/c you want to.
    Thanks -- Chris
