    monitor resoultions

    Hi every one, I have a question that I don't think has one answer. If I'm making a website, what monitor resolution should I be designing it for? Should I make it for 1024x768 or do you think enough people have bigger monitors to make it for wider monitors. Really the height isn't the main concern, but the width.

    What are your thoughts?

    1024 is the widest that's acceptable (and by that, I mean 990 as that's the available viewport for people with 1024 monitors).

    Keep up to date with the latest statistics and hopefully, sooner rather than later, we'll be able to design for larger.

    You shouldn't be designing for any particular monitor and your web site should work well where there is no monitor at all. Think flexible not nailed down. If this offends your need for control then HTML isn't for you.

    Well, my websites may not be the best in the world.. Perhaps they do look better when there is no monitor at all.....
