It depends if you are using CSS throughout ot tables.



I usually use 800xanything and make the web page fit in the middle eg osla property. I have seen lots of major sites using 800xanything. Sometimes clients would not like to see blank spaces on side/sides though.



You can have web design which fits all screen resolution if the middle part of the graphic content is plain or has homogenous design.



If you are using CSS throughout then its easy as it will fit all screen resolution. eg Dreamstime's website.

My suggestion, would to not totally forget about 800 x 600, but spend more time making it look good for 1024 x 768. It's clearly the most used, but if you also spend some time making it work in 800 x 600, like maybe a redirect script that switches the user to a version of the site based on their resolution, then everyone ends up being happy. This was a big issue when everyone was switching from 640 x 480 up to 800 x 600, so it all changes slightly over the years.

The audience for the website will be mid range users in terms of their degree of comfort with computers and technology. I would imagine it would be viewed by people both at work and at home.



I still think we need to design for 800x600 - various stats say 10-20% of people still use 800x600. That is high to me.



I'd be interested to know what other designers are doing now with their web designs in relation to screen resolution and why. Thanks in advance!

[quote]Think of it this way, since you already have resolution of 800 x 600 and it some day will become a screen of the past you should be making your site friendly for 1024x768 and keep the 800x600 to to continue reciving taffic from the 20% die hards still out there. Cater to both intill your sure there is not much worth to keeping the 800x600 screen.

Hi,

I still design pages at 800x600 and center them all. Seems to be the best solution at this time. They still look good on a 1024x768.



The only thing I'm concerned when I design is to make sure that the layout outcome (HTML-wise) comes out the same for both IE and Firefox web browser.



Cheers.

If You make the website for fun You are able to suppose that the most common resolution is 3458x94847



But if the web site is to be paid, 780 px object is maximum allowed. And if you want to have full screen web site, your question is wrong.



There is a table or css model to fill the screen with graphic elements and colors. Look this web site. 780 px of width. and dilatable line on the right side.

Hahaha... I think PlumDesign meant to say is that if you're designing websites for personal fun, then you could design at whatever resolution you feel like. :)



Anyhow, I am now starting to design most of my client's websites with 900 or 1000 pixels in width and centering the whole site. With the remaining left and right space, I fill them with colored background that fits with the design.



Cheers.

I use fluid width when I can, but the site I'm working on currently (it's up now, actually; I had to do a total re-design from the previous designer's version. Too many frames, and a JavaScript menu...) I made 900px wide. Part of this was due to the menu design; it needed the extra width to fit all menu items properly.



Sometimes you just have to work with what you've got.

I would base it on 1024. most monitors support this resolution and higher. the most important reason is that you want to design for the future, that means as the standard size of monitors is growing, the resolution is too .. so if at this point, more people will be using 800 / 600 (which to be honest i find hard to believe) in the next 6 months to a year it will be obsolete - or old really .. best design for future - that way you won't have to redo the site so quickly

Since the target audience for your website will be the mid range internet users I'd definitely go with 1024x768.

Stats seems to be going down for 800x600 anyway, please take a look at this;

IMHO more than %50 of that %8 (800x600) are not internet surfers. That makes it less than %4 of your target audience :)
