    width for 1024x768 resolution screen?

    Hi,

    I am going to redesign my site to fit a 1024x768 screen resolution as this is now the majority of my visitors and I want to take advantage of the additional space

    But what is the maximum I can make the width of the site to display in a 1024x768 screen correctly? I mean for and 800x600 res. screen the maximum width you can use is 770px to ensure that it fits in all browsers. Does anyone know the max width for a 1024x768 res?

    Thanks,

    Al

    I have found out that espn.com is designed for a 1024x768 screen res. and they use a max width of 990px - Is that what others use?

    Take a look at the WebMonkey recommendations - and decide which browsers you can ignore (unfortunately the set of browsers in this table is a bit outdated... )

    Or you could stop polluting the web with fixed width design sites.

    Yes, it is a little old, but now I can complete my dream of designing for Netscape 4.7 on a Mac.
