    What width do you normally use when designing a web page? I often use 940 - 970 pixels.

    screen resolution 640x480 on the best one can get without emptying your bank account. This meant that designers aim to make pages that seemed well in browsers maximized at a 14inch screen 12 of that resolution.The width is fixed at a specific number and doesn't change no matter how big or small the browser is.I assume that people are using this resolution is to maximize the browser window, so the minimum width of 760 is acceptable.

    I am normally changing the width to around 80%-85% or around 850px. I don't like forums which are a fluid width, I prefer a fixed width.

    I use the normal one but it should be enough wide to be seen on the wide screen clearly...!
    i had seen many of the sites whose resolution is not good on the wide screen

    That is a good question. When designing, I used to always use my screen size with is 1200 x 900, but a couple of days ago, I realized from Fergal that 85% of the people used 1024 x 768 as a screen size. I now use that as the smallest size for the design, but of course, you can go bigger. For the iPhones and iPads, I will have a mobile theme.

    Normally 800px wide by 600px tall width is used to design a webpage. the size will have a big effect in how your user views your page.

    Width should be 480 and height should be 640. Although you can use different variations.

    I will normally use 925 for the width, but the height normally depends on what kind of site it is. I prefer it to extend all the way to the bottom of the screen though; however, I do whatever is needed.
