a personal note about your "best viewed at resolution message" -- i'm not attacking your or your site, but i wanted to share another user-type view. if i can help it, i never revisit a site that tells me what resolution to use or that doesn't display in the resolution i prefer. i'm one of those types who likes to have many different windows open at once, which means each window is small enough that the other open windows are visible all at the same time. at my monitor resolution of 1856x1392, this means my browser is usually 800x600 or less. dealing with sites that horizontally scroll or don't fit is very frustrating and i try to avoid them when i find them.
