There are some sites that give these statistics, but these are only statistics for visitors to that particular site which may not be representative of your particular customer.
Just float the site. If many 'corporate' sites don't, that's their problem. Many are worried about the ad revenue, and clogging your bandwidth with graphics and Google.
The small devices might benefit from a particular style sheet. But there's also the ability to slide the page around. You just put your finger on the screen, or maybe others on a touchpad. So I think I'd just float the elements on the page.
this link is a bit old but maybe still relavent. [w3schools.com...]
i still design for 800x600, but of course fluid is the way to go
so it just goes to show that we shouldn't get overly worried about this stuff because people will still come to your site if it's good enough. i've been coming here for ages and i've only just noticed.
i've just noticed that webmasterworld has it set at 80% of the screen width, or something like that. and if you resize your browswer to 800 then it still stays at 80%.
I think it's gone slightly narrower just recently - wasn't it full browser width a while back?! Anyway could be wrong.
But, more importantly, the type of users who are likely to be visiting webmasterworld are more likely to have average or bigger screens. But then again, worldwide that might not be the case I guess?
