HTML Monitor Resolutio

What's the correct monitor resolution for viewing HTML documents? I have three computers with different monitors. They all look different.

Correct is relative to the viewer. Someone who uses 800x600 in highcolour may consider their viewing habits standard, whereas a super user with 1024x768 or higher in true colour may use that more often.

It is possible to design your page(s) so that they are at least readable on lower resolutions/colours than what you might use by optimizing images till the're almost unnoticeable:

And thinking about how the screen will resize itself at different widths. Using percentage spacing can help ensure that resizes usually occur the way you want them to.

I personally design for 800x600 16bit colour and up, but always make sure its readable at lower resolutions.
