I'm not very good at reading long lines and hate trying to move from one line to another on a variable width design. I almost always design at fixed width (740px), but quite a few of my sites have skyscraper banners (120x600) down the side. This can reduce the content width to 550-600 once its all spaced out (about 65-75 chars in a smallish font). This, IMO, is the perfect width for maximum readability. I would disagree with - >I personally prefer to maximise my browser to get more info as opposed to scrolling down Maybe you don't have a wheel mouse? Don't most people? That about my £0.02 done :) Jason > -----Original Message----- > Subject: [thelist] DEBATE: Fixed Width Vs Liquid > The graphics department here says that a 100% width is "ugly" > and "not readable" because "users don't want to read long > lines of text."
