    One thing after another. Finally got website to look almost the same in IE and Mozilla. Then I by chance I did a preview at 800x600. It doesn't fit and there are no scroll bars. Is there a way to manipulate the background image with css? Or am I better off redoing the site with 800x600 in mind?

    I thought since I had a programming background this was going to be easy.

    I surf in 800x600, but only because my PC is old.

    There are too many people who surf in 800 x 600 to ignore.

    Sadly CSS can't manipulate the background other than how it tiles. Resizing is not an option in CSS.

    Always make ur site 800 by 600, or have two different versions of it, or make it liquid(change depending on browser by using percents). You can always center it if you make it 800 by 600.

    I have always aimed my sites at 800*600 and 1024*768. I personally surf at 1024 on each of the machines I sit at.

    I always make my sites at 800*600, mainly because I use it, and I know alot of people who do.
    I am going to start using 1024*768 as soon as I get a new monitor (might just get a new computer instead ), but I'll still make my sites fit 800*600

    Okay I did the site for 800x600. I don't know if I am going to center it or not. Let me know what you think. There really isn't any real content on the site yet. And only the index page is up.

    Here is the site

    is the general consensus that it is better to have a liquid page or a single 'fixed-width' page that centers on all resolutions?
