    page width

    Hello,
    I've read
    Homepage Usability - Book Review at http://www.webreference.com/new/011008.html
    In it, it says
    Page width optimized for 770 pixels, but with a liquid layout
    How do I do it? May I have an example of page width optimized for 770 pixels, but with a flexible table layout?

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    A few ways:

    1) Make SOMETHING in your liquid layout table 770 pixels wide. This could be a single image or a combination of images. Then set the rest of the TABLE to width="100%" The page will expand to fill the available space, but will get no smaller than the widest element(s), in this case, the images.

    2) Try using CSS2's max-width and min-width attributes. Don't get your hopes up though, they're VERY unreliable.
