    Website Alignment?

    When I view my website iblazed.com on a 21" monitor the site only takes up 3/4 of the screen. How can I get the site to take up the whole screen, no matter what size the screen is? Thanks

    Use percentages instead of fixed widths in your css. If you would post code or at least a link, we could help you out more.

    He did post the link to his site Dave (iblazed.com)... 1st sentence 6th word

    Dave is right though don't use fixed widths if you want to fill up the whole screen. It has nothing to do with a 21" monitor but the resolutin of the screen. In all honesty your width for the site right now is a confusing one. Not wide enough to fill up a 1024x768 res but too wide for 800x600.

    Try your site on a monitor with 800x600 resolution, you'll get a horizontal scrollbar.
