When I first started out, I chose a fixed layout, but then I switched to a
flexible layout, that would be readable in low resolutions without
scrollbars and not break in higher resoultions. I was definitely designing
for users - I also checked the effects on userdefined text sixes in the
three different browses I have available. However - Missed the zoom in 1280
The layout should be flexible, but how come the text drops out of the
I really am trying to design for users, everything else would be silly.
However it is really difficult to make a bulletproof design for alle the
variable insane things the users will do. Especially since browsers
interpret css in many different ways.
