Here's the situation: A client tells you they want their website built to fit nicely on their
new monster monitor, so you tell them it should be built for most of the public, not for the latest and greatest.
They write back to say they want it for their mega-monitor. You try again but they insist.
Want to predict what happens next? People start sending them feedback saying it's a pain in the butt to have to scroll back & forth. Hey, no surprise there.
So for example, if you designed the page to fit in a 1366 environment and people with 1024 start complaining, is there a way to detect that 1024 viewer's monitor and auto resize all the page content
(text & graphics) down by 76%?
Essentially, it is the same as the person going to IE tools and zooming from 100% to a lower number, only they would not have to do it, this script would do it automatically for the pages on this site only
. So when they went onto another site somewhere, their monitor would be in the normal state, not the auto-resize.
If there is a way to properly deal with the question I'm posting, then that may solve the problem. However I have a feeling it's a pipedream, but thought I'd turn to the experts to see if anyone has run into the same thing and come up with a solution. Thanks for any thoughts....
