Hi All,

I am doing a very large website which is meant for a very wide audience. The clinet would not want to miss even smaller percentages (which use 640x480) resolutions.

Following approaches are suggested:

1. Keep tables in percentage and not in pixels
disadvantage> 
in larger resolution the spread of text will increase, thus reducing online readability
2. Check for client resolution and throw the page accordingly
disadvantage> 
download time would increase (theoraticle analysis, no data yet)	
development time should also go up

What else can be done, and any oter advantages or disadvantages with above 2?
