    Er. What exactly do you mean? If you are setting them at a fixed width (500, 600, 900, etc.) always make sure you never have a fixed width larger than 800. If you are using percentages and fixed widths mixed together, it becomes more difficult.

    It'd be much easier to answer if you showed us what site you're having the difficulty with, we can pinpoint the problem.

    Then you should use relative width size values, as i.e with %.

    Here some advice if you are planning a multi-column page: http://psychology.wichita.edu/surl/u.../3S/layout.htm

    If you are still planning to use absolute width size values, please take care of the Canvas sizes. More here: http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/...x3a_page2.html

    OK Netkid, lets get this straight:

    I guess that posting this thread/post in the accessibility and usability forum here, you must have intended to find out how can you make your web site accessible or usable, or both.

    As mentioned previously, in this, or these cases you should work with relative sizes, instead of absolute, as prescribed at the Webmonkey site.

    After all, if you want a cross-screen-resolution web site, and still be accessible and usable, do as mentioned above.

    If it is not so, I would recommend you to post this question at the HTML, XHTML or CSS forums.
