Display issues with CSS

Posted 17 December 2008 - 03:42 PM

I have a quick question I'm still useing a 19 crt monitor lol and have been designing website templates and have ran into alignment problems at higher resolutions. now my question is if I get a higher res monitor build a website at a higher resolution will it display right at a much lower res?
also I have for the most part switched to codeing in % over px ie

#main_width {
width: 80%; (as opposed to 900px)
height:auto;
}

thanks for the help

One issue you will run into with using % is the lower resolutions will be totally smashed when looking at the website, especially if they aren't using their browser in maximized viewing mode.

As for making the site at a larger size, I would suggest actually making it at a lower res, and then adding Javascript or something to change the stylesheet for higher res computers. That way the users will all see the site the same way unless they have a higher res monitor and JS enabled, at which point the skin will be made to closer fit their res.

Hope that makes sense.
