    Just wondering what others out there use as a maximum content width for a fixed-width page.

    I am taking under assumption that I am designing for 800x600 or higher resolutions. As far as I know, this is the most common practice right now.

    With that in mind, what would you set your table widths to be, so as not to induce horizontal scrolling?

    Any other ideas/opinions are welcome as well, of course.

    780 pixels is the maximum possible fixed width if you're allowing for 800x600 minimum resolution. The only thing you have to make sure of is that your left and right margins are set to 0 pixels as well, or your content won't fit horizontally.

    I usually do 780 max, but lately I've been a fan of 700 pixel-wide sites (or smaller) that are centered.

    My last design used 740, so I might crank that up a bit. I do this particular one as a centered table -- like this site -- so that it still looks reasonable for people with higher resolutions.

    700 is a bit too small for what I need to do, so it looks like I'll give 780 a shot and hope that nobody complains too loudly. In my ideal world, everybody is running 1024x768 or higher...

    Thanks!

    1024x768 becoming standard would be soooo nice. Don't see that happening anytime soon though :ermm:
