    New help with window/browser resizing....

    Hi folks,

    I am frustrated and hope that someone can throw their three cents in the mix and offer a solution for a web design problem I'm facing. I am sure it is simple to someone who understands the complexities of web design.

    I am developing a website ..however when I go to view the site on a smaller monitor, my site looks squished and the elements are all on top of one another. I have a 20 inch monitor and I assume that I should be designing for a 17 inch, eh? What can I do so as my web page resizes correctly for any size monitor?

    Do I need to change the resolution of the monitor to 800x600 when I design the site,,or is it something else I need to do? I am thinking this won't matter as the browser will only appear correct if a view has their monitor set to a resolution of 800x600...

    Thanks so much..

    1) Monitor size doesn't matter. The biggest issue is available window size which can't be greater than the screen resolution.

    The importance of window-width
    Senior citizens tend to prefer 800x600 to 1024x768.

    2) Please fix your X/HTML errors.

    Java != JavaScript && JScript != JavaScript
    Design/program for Firefox (and/or Opera), apply fixes for IE, not the other way around.
