Umm.....what? You're honestly saying having someone burn a 10th of a calorie
to click and drag the corner of a browser window is comparable to telling
them to get a new monitor or trying to scroll to an area of a site they
can't see?

Sorry, that logic simply proves the worth of liquid tables. That doesn't
mean they aren't (frequently) misused. It takes a lot more than just
changing every <td> width to 100%, but properly designed and deployed,
liquid tables will almost always provide a better viewing experience across
ANY size monitor or resolution setting -
