This could be debatable.
I think that the author should have the possibility to suggest what he
believes it's the best window dimension (for example because her text has 
a lot of 600*400 pics :-) ). Of course this could lead to very bad documents,
but I don't know whether one of purposes of style sheets is to educate the 
HTML writer.

ciao, .mau.
