what's happened to fluid layouts?
The problem has become wider monitors. Should the user have one say 2,000 pixels wide (or wider even), a paragraph becomes a loooong sentence and, in my opinion, annoying to read.
Depending on the type of site, wider is not necessarily better. In fact, it could have a negative impact.
