Using a Fixed Size for a Website

kaemac21 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
Is there any way to set a maximum width on a website in dreamweaver, so that the user cannot enlarge the screen past 1000x800px? However I still need to maintain the scrollbars. I am having trouble with viewing the same site in different browsers, but if I could ensure that the page could not be viewed in widescreen, items would not shift around in IE as they are currently.
