    Anyone have any suggestions for testing:

    How a site looks at various resolutions? I can resize my browser all day long but I don't know how to fix it to say 800x600 to see what it looks like for ppl who are using that res..if that makes any sense [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    How it looks on Mac (!) I, nor anyone in this house, don't own any Mac's and i'm reading REALLY BAD things about using css / specific point sizes for fonts and then displaying them on mac due to the different DPI or something...

    cross browser is easy as I plan to just download all the browsers.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    The easiest way to change resolution in Windows is to go to Microsoft website and download a tool called Quickres - it's part of the Windows Powertools package. If you run a search you should be able to find it on other sites as well.

    Quickres sits in your system tray and lets you change both resolution and color depth with just a click. It's much easier/safer than changing your resolution settings in your desktop properties.

    Is this what you are talking about?

    Jim Tools has a nice easy way to view pages at different res.

    www.jimtools.com Go to HTML tools then scroll all the way down to:
    "View URL's at different screen sizes". This tool saved my site once because I was designing on a low res lap top at the time and someone told me my site dispayed wrong in hi res but I didn't have a way to see what they were talking about. Just pop in the URL and & was res you want to view and it will simulate it for you.

    Hope this helps!

    Maria,Linda,
    Thanks!! Those tools should help a lot...

    Eaglefire,
    no,not exactly, I'd rather do it without changing resolutions as that always leaves my desktop a mess after switching back, and generally is annoying..
    However, is quickres any different than that option to show the display icon in the task bar.. I'm using XP here and I don't see it anymore, though.

    Quickres is a bit different Joseph, I haven't used it in some time but as I remember it is reasonably good at cleaning up after itself. The only times I've seen it trash a desktop is switching between 640x480 and higher resolutions.

    I don't think it runs on XP however ...
