    Depending on what you are trying to do exactly this could be simple or very complicated. You could use flash, css positioning, expanding tables, or write a complicated script that will switch out various elements depending on user resolution.

    What I would do is take the CSS route, but that involves a solid understanding of CSS(obviously). Probably for you the simpliest solution is to use an expanding table. An expanding table is a table with a variable width depending on the width of the browser. This site uses an expanding table if you click on the "<< bigger" toggle switch on the top of the page. Depending on your perticular circumstances how to do this could be answered a thousand ways.

    Yeah, the short and dirty version is insted of using sizes in pixels, you'll use percents. So for example, insted of saying "with="775", you would use "width="70%".

    (though, it really should all be done through css)
