i'm not sure i agree with that, only because i surf in 640px 
windows, and throwing in margins would make it too thin for me... 
also, that's not the "correct" use of <blockquote>, as if that 
matters... i'd rather let a user resize his or her window... of course, 
we also know that not all users know how to resize, so...

oh well....

i do agree completely with your comments about the patronizing tone and the use of bold...
