This is more of a discussion thread.

Many of the reviews in the Website Reviews section of the forums report that a designer has allowed to much white to creep into the pages.

So a question then:

How is it that some sites, for example, www.genie.co.uk, www.avantgo.com or www.handspring.co.uk can get away with having quite a lot of white... whereas on other sites it looks wrong?

What do you do to get the compromise between too much or too little white, right?
