it should fit on a 1024x768 screen, most users use this resolution.. and that's a fact :) but if you want to make it more accessible you should try to make it 800x600.. old company's and most schools (here at least) use 800x600.. depends on who you do you want to reach with your site..

Friend, these things aren't difficult. The idea with good webdesign is to NEVER have to worry about the user's resolution. Many sites build for 800x600 or 1024x768, but neglect to realize that if the sites can't scale for larger resolutions (like my fave, 1600x1200), then they're a pain in the ass. I would just make sure the your site is *rudimentarily* useable at 800x600 and make the site scale to window size. One other thing I would try to keep an eye out for is to see if the site works well in Mozilla. Don't wanna start a flame war, but I use Firebird (since it is so much better than IE, *ahem* haha) and its nice to see sites render properly (like good 'ole neowin.net). WOW, ENOUGH RAMBLING...just my pitiful $.01 ......

P.S. If you don't use a Mozilla browser or Opera, I would download a build of Mozilla Firebird since it doesn't need to be installed-- just unzip and run the .exe file.....

Try and post under an appropriate forum, this topic has nothing to do with NT OS support.

Building for a specific resolution is a real cowboy way to design sites, dude! Make sure it fits all resolutions!

actuall a dual 1600x1200 setup is 3200x1200, not 3200x2400...

anyway, i run dual 1280x1024, total 2560x1024. but i normally have browser on only 1 half...

sorry, aco ...

No worries mate, just remember for next time. :)

BTW, I run @ 1280X1024 (a native LCD resolution). I have designed a few websites in the past and I think now the minimum standard resolution is 1024x768, so design your site for that (unless you are aiming for complete compatibility, then design it with 800x600 minimum in mind).

1920x1440 on main (I can do 2048x1536, but the means dropping down to 60Hz - ouch), 1600x1200 on secondary. I love big monitors. :D I can fit two neowins side by side on my desktop. ;)

1280x1024, but you should probably try and make it look best at 1024 and viewable (even if it doesn't look as good) at 800x600

Then your resolution would be 3200x1200, not 2400. It's still 1200 tall, just doubled the screen width.
