    Use CSS to create a liquid layout.
    Forget style. Code to semantics. Seperate style from structure, and structure from behaviour.
    I code to specs, and test only in Firefox (unless stated otherwise).

    liquid layout = layout based upon percentage values not absolute.

    Example:

    <table width="100%">
    <tr>
    <td height="100%" width="60%">&nbsp;</td>
    <td height="100%" width="40%">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    </table>


    What i would suggest is you code your site to be an absolute width of 800px.
    can never go wrong with an 800 wide site.
    public string ConjunctionJunction(string words, string phrases, string clauses)
    {
    return (String)(words + phrases + clauses);
    }

    You have to account for the scrollbar. 770px Seems to be okay that is of course with out any left or right margins.
