My solution to this problem is to work in ems.
Set default text size to 76% ie 1em = 12px.
Set default page size (using a container div) 60ems. (screen width 720px)
Produce columns in relative widths.
display is greater than 900 pixels wide, default text size is 81% or 1em = 13px (screen width
display is greater than 1200 pixels wide, default text size is 87% or 1em = 14px (screen width
display is greater than 1500 pixels wide, default text size is 94% or 1em = 15px (screen width
(because in my experience, most people with large monitors do not maximize their browser windows,
like you do when browsing the web on a smaller monitor - comes from working on a 21" and 17" monitor
on the same computer)
