    website sizes

    Hi, I wanted to know what is the max size (in pixels) a website should be... is 1024 too wide or is 640 the new standard. I see some sites that are really big and some that fit the screen on any pc you go to.

    Thanks

    Hi, welcome to the forums.

    Its generally better to use a flexible design. You can achieve this by using percentage widths instead of fixed widths.

    A good website should conform to the w3 standards. But it also has to suit its intended audience.

    I like to think of the lowest common denominator.
    Alot (still the majority, I think) of people use 800px monitors, so I would design so it looked best in 800px width, and by using percentages, it could gracefully expand to accommodate larger monitors. If the expected user is going to be using PDA, I would design for that.
