CSS can provide for this with the concept of a max-width attribute (name might
be slightly off).  You can design a variable-width page that will work on
800x600, and have it expand on larger browsers, not to exceed a certain point,
so that you don't end up with paragraphs of text on a single line at

The caveat is that I'm not sure how well browsers support this.  I know that
some do, and some don't, as always.  Depending on the distribution of support,
this might be enough to satisfy those that want fixed-width and those that
want variable-width.
