Tom,  that layout is a PNG graphic, of course it doesn't scale ;-)

But this design (done right, which I suspect Omar & Emily of doing)
could easily collapse 200 pixels to drop to a minimum 800 pixels wide.
 To me this is a non issue.

And if you've got a big monitor, then use it!  Why pretend to surf on
a Palm Pilot?
