    Use percents - as in table width=100%
    That way it will fit into everyone's screen.

    I agree about using %, however, if you do design using a fixed width make it no more than 750 pixels. 740 is better.

    Go with the flow man! Liquid design is a snap with tables and with CSS it's even easier...

    I just checked out a site (3 column CSS layout) in my father and laws old machine in a 480x600 monitor, and whilst it was not as pretty as at higher resolutions it held up really well.

    All the content visible and accessible and not bad at all...

    If you do a search on google for 'liquid design' then you'll find some great resources.. including one I did [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    If you do go with the flow, make sure you break the tables into columns, so text doesn't flow all the way across the highres monitors.

    The optimum line length for readability is 12 to 15 words... longer and people start having trouble.

    My browser resolution stats on 200+ web sites for all my clinets show 84% of users have 800x600 res with large fonts. Never delelop a site with your own browser set at anything other than 800x600 or you run the risk of ugly non-aligned pages and browser scroll bars. Always use % for tables like mentioned above.
