<sigh> do we have to go over this again... different users have
different monitor sizes. People with big monitors want to be able to
resize their browsers to view multiple windows simultaneously. You can't
assume that everyone's window width is 800 pixels: it's too much for
some users and too little for others. It's not that difficult to make a
stretchy site that looks good at multiple widths, I think php.net is a
classic example of this (though debian, kde, mozilla, ximian are also
good examples).
