    Maximum height for 1024 X 768?

    EDIT: What is the maximum pixel dimensions I should use to fit a 1024 X 768 browser without using a scroll bar? I know the width should arguably be 980, but what should the height be?

    Height's anything your content is. It, um, doesn't work like that, really. It's more dynamic when you start going down.

    i read some where, where this mathmetician did this elaborate computer resolution report, and he came out to a number of, 964px was the perfect width for a layout.

    So i would start with the width of 964px!

    That's brilliant and all. To someone without a resolution of 800x600. *coughs to cover profanities*
    The height is dependant on the one of the browser. The best you can do is some elaborate tricks with getting a fluid height of 100%, but that's the best you can do. People can do some WEIRD things with their browser windows. Have you ever seen my wife surf?

    well you will never know unfortunately, i did a quick look on mine and switched my resolution to 1024x768. The height worked at 569px. But here is the thing, i have toolbars on the top of my browser, which will push dwon the actuall window. So it is always going to vary, if you want just do your height at 100% to keep from getting the scroll bar.

    Code:
    height:100%;

    Your max height is probably around 400px if you want to cover all possibilities - you have no way to know how much chrome your user has, ie. I have just over 500px but I don't have a google/yahoo/<insert spyware toolbar here> toolbar. If you want to be 100&#37; certain that you'll never get a scroll bar I wouldn't go above 350px. (fwiw, most people don't browse full screen)
