Good exultant and apt usability take home the plan ask nearly irrelevant.

Cons of Fixed Width Layouts:

Cons of Liquid Layouts
-susceptible to give at abnormal or 800x600 resolutions. In some cases, a standing apart CSS profile is needed to set for 800x600. This is a affliction.
I have been determination that whichever websites are not artful with 800x600 as the lowermost tier of monitor resolve. Rather, a lot of websites are designing with 1024 x 768 as the type. Over the close few geezerhood I deliberate 800x600 resolutions will be singular. The one and only caution to this is relations next to optic disabilities.
In sum, make a choice the plan that will best causa the needs of your content. And as the needs of your contented change, you can later conversion the layout. That's the charm of CSS. You are not fast into anything!
