    I designed my site at 1024 x 768 and I just viewed it at 800 x 600, its a mess! What would be the easiest way for me to make everything fit in a 800 x 600 browser window?

    Hopefully there is a shortcut.

    Make sure all the tables containing variable data are set to a percentage ...not a pixel length. Try www.sloops.com at any resolution and notice no browser scroll Bars.

    Actually, set your table to 770 pixels wide. If you want a liquid design, set your table to 100% and be sure to have some whitespace cellspacing=5. Then tweak the design, trial and error, there are some free programs that will show you the site in different resolutions, i think one is called browsersizer, or use a dual monitor setup and set on to 800X600 (one you try dual monitors you will never use just one monitor again)

    If you're using a percentage for tables, you'll need to make sure the content on each line doesn't exceed 770px. So, 3 images, each at 200px wide, and a menu running along the edge, will more then likely cause a scrolling problem on 800x600 screens.

    Ellen you have the left nav bar set at 20% and the center one set at 90% =110%. I'm not sure how you placed in the Adsense display on the right but it is a table script set to 120 pixels

    To design for both, you will have to have a table in a table design. The first table is a two column design at 100% size. This allows it to expand and contract to the diffent sizes. Column 1 is set to 800 pixels. This is where you insert the second table for your content.

    The second column in your main table is for ads. It can expand and contract with the browser's sizing. For an example see the top newspaper and sports sites. This is how they do it.
