How does one set the maximum page width while keeping a minimum.
So for example you could set the minimum to 600 pixels or 80% and have a max at 1,240 or something?
Would it be best to use java script or css?
I have to ask because I do not want to have a fixed screen size but also do not want pages to expand 100% when displayed on a massive screen.
However, IE6 won't understand max-width. You will need to use an expression, something like:
width:expression(document.body.clientWidth > 1024? "1024px": "auto" );
If you need further help, this should really be in the CSS forum.
Hope that helps! :)
As was said, this requires some basic CSS support. This should generally not be a problem, aside from IE 6 and earlier. For IE, take a look at Dean Edwards' IE7 library [dean.edwards.name].
<title> new document </title>
What's your Doctype?
can I please just repeat that support of newer properties (css enhancements) and features in IE6 AND IE7 is only possible with a Compliant/Strict rendering DOCTYPE
and designaweb you're not thick.. it's not just you - it's IE7 that's helping highlight something that was already there

My main concern is when someone sticks the site onto a massive display. Previously it would stretch and to be frank look ridiculous.
Is there any danger for regular monitors?
No, it shouldn't, max-width should only kick in if the viewport . . . exceeds max-width. :-)
My screen res is 1920x1200 and screens are getting bigger, especially with TV and flat screen monitors etc.
There does seem to be a general consensus when it comes to minimum but not much when it comes to max.
I do realise that it depends on how the site looks but what are your ideas as most sites will begin to look funny when expanded too much?
