One can track the window size and see what is used by visitors. As webmasters we tend (as a group) to have lots of windows/sessions open and are NOT the average web user. There are valid points in both observations... I'm just in the camp that (okay... I'm a fluid guy NOW, but I wasn't three years ago) it is time to rethink. Gather the data, find that median point, then set width. My comment is that with the higher screen resolutions the fonts render correspondingly smaller and that should be taken into consideration if one is going to make any layout change.
