    As usual i am always busy with restyling BRnet
    most designs are never finished, like the one we have now.

    but now i have made a design that is worth of finishing. A professional layout but with a BR look and feel.

    the base resolution of the layout is 800x600 but i know lots of people do use a higher resolution than that.

    so my question to you is, what do you prefer?

    I voted for automatic resize, but I have noticed a limit to the rezize as it currently sits -- approximately 1024 wide.

    I run my screen at 1600 x 1200, so expanding that maximum would be great

    Out of curiousity (I like to be an informed voter) what would be the impact of a fixed higher resolution on users with smaller resolutions? This isn't really an issue for me (I use 1024x768) but I think that if it will end up being a hassle for low res peoples (with much more scrolling side to side being required for example) it may influence the way I vote.

    well the impact is more on my side... the layout we are using now is fairly simple.
    but the layout i designed is more complicated. so a variable screen res will be lots of work for me

    if everyone wants to know what i am talking about..
    http://www.birthright.net/test
    its build on 800x600

    i have done some research and still 48 (majority) of the world wide internet users is still using 800x600 since its the standard windows installation screen res.

    1% of the world is still using 640x480

    42% is using 1024x768
    and only 9% is using a screen res higher then that

    That looks pretty cool.
    I don't mind if it's a bit more narrow than the full resolution of my screen.
    At least then my eyes don't have to read so wide lines. ^_^
    So in light of that, I'll vote 800x600.

    I voted for 800x600 too.

    Your test page looks pretty cool, Arjan&#33;

    The letters shouldn&#39;t be smaller than that, because I don&#39;t want to fetch my glasses to spot something on it
