    Question help understanding fixed layout

    Hi , thanks for reading ,
    I've got to grips with basic html and css ,
    Now i'm moving on to layouts , i had it looking nice ,
    but when i moved the viewer window it all moves around ,

    so come to the understanding i want fixed layout
    which seems to be the case in most the websites i like
    does that mean i have to stick to fixed pixel values ???
    is there no way of creating a percentage of the screens resolution ??
    then the layout stays fixed in relation to view port ,
    but automatically scales to the full screen size ??
    make sense ??

    if not are there any good guidelines for fixed layout
    anyone know average users screen size ? type of stuff
    size of an ipad screen ??

    If you're wanting your page to shrink and expand in relation to the browser window then you need a fluid layout.

    here is a good article about fixed and fluid.
