Well, eventough I have the "layout stability" in my subject line some comments like yours are off topic and it does not even provide any feedback about the "layout stability. However I welcome any comments about my portfolio to enhance it as much as I can. 
I believe there is not any %100 perfect layout on earth, since there are different parameters a layout needs to be designed for such as cross resolution/browser/platform capabilities etc.

Have you checked my css file? I have set the font size to %96 and I do not see it as a failure to meeting the legibility as jakob states in his article.  Jakob's page that you have provided itself fails to meet the layout stability requirements .

could you send me a screen capture of what you see please giving me the necessary info about the environment at which the layout has those problems? >The huge space between the P and the images to their right probably needs>trimming via an overall width limit or some more space to the right of the>images.

I have designed this layout to make it work as much as it is possible for all resolutions allowing for up to two increments. Now I would like to know how would you provide a cross resolution/browser/platform solution for what you see as a problem in regards to the gap at 1200 resolution and zoom? And would appreciate it if you reply to the list because I would like other members to participate in this discussion as well.
