    Variable Fixed Width

    So for the width of the body we've had it

    Code:
    height:100%;
    /* font: 77%/1.4 'Lucida Sans Unicode', 'Lucida Grande', verdana, sans-serif;  */
    font: 77%/1.4 Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    min-width:1030px;
    I'd like the min-width to be variable between 800px and 1030px. Any ideas on how best to approach this?

    -Regards

    btw never mind, found some niggly bits of fixed width css in other parts of the code that were getting in the way

    Why do you set the font size smaller than your viewers' preference?
    For most people that will be illegible.
    Don't you want them to read your page?
    Code:
    min-width:1030px;

    How do you expect the browser to determine what it should be if you
    (could) give it a range?

    And why bother? Why not let it adjust to the viewers' window size?

    I can. I don't see a reason to bother as the topic of this thread has been handled, unless I wanted to get in an annoying debate with a troll on some internet forum, which I don't.
