Wide, Wide Web

The Dreamweaver pages at the web site at www.onestat.com have a fixed layout
1000 pixels wide. With an 800 by 600 window, you wouldn't even suspect that
the internal pages have a Contact Us link and a list of testimonials on the
right. Maybe Dreamweaver could gently suggest a narrower template?

so much for "intelligence web analytics" - some of the pages are fixed width for
1024, some for 800 (customer support / contact us) some are neither one or the
other ...

You can tell actually, coz you get scroll bars ..

I think I probably don't usually notice the horizontal scroll bar. I wonder
what a study would show about the percentage of people who notice them when
the incompleteness of the page isn't apparent from the visible portion of
the page.
