A good structural test for a layout is that it should hold without
breaking, overlapping, or float dropping at +2 font-zoom in the Gecko
browsers. And at text-size "largest" in with ignore font sizes checked
in accessibility mode in IE5 through 7. Some designers also check
their layout for breaking by setting the minimum font size at least 24px.
With regard to re-writing, you are running 5 columns and may need even
more width than you currently show-- granted you'll draw an even wider
scrollbar at 800. Allowing the software to layout the page without
restriction (particularly avoiding setting height) helps.
This is a simple and somewhat similar (nothing to write home about) example:
It has been quick tested in IE5 through 7; and in compliant browsers.
To put IE in accessibility mode:
tools>internet options>accessibility>tcheck bo about ignore font
PS I learned most of what I know from Georg Sortun-- the gentle man who
"your layout is a bit weak, and can't take much, if any,
font-resizing in any browser. Test in browsers and you'll see how easily it breaks."
