Keep it liquid
Posted on June 14, 2003 @ 14:57 in Webdesign
There are two types of websites. Those which have a fixed width layout and those which adjust the layout automatically to the width of the browser window. Liquid design, particularly when implemented through CSS, allows for your website to show up looking its best in different sized browser windows, on different platforms, including handheld devices. Even older systems are catered for, because the design will degrade gracefully, allowing unfettered access to the website's content.
If you think that taking this approach is too much work or that users are not interested, think again. Ars Technica's latest poll shows that a whopping 78% (June 14, 2003) would rather have a liquid design than a fixed one for the site.

Since MT-Blacklist inexplicably stopped working I had no other recourse than close comments and trackbacks to stop the spam. I've been meaning to correct this for quite a while, but life got in the way... in a good way I should add.
