Website Resolution

What is the best way to maintaing web sites that is being viewed in different resolution. Should we use a fixed width and height for all the resolutions or shall we use percentage width which I believe is not according to the web standards when using doctype. There's also another way which is to compute the resolution used by the user and set the size of the site base on that. What would you suggest among these three?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it somewhat depends on the complexity of the page. If there are many divs and you need to dynamically resize them every time, that just gives you too many ways for things to go wrong. The most stable and solid way is to use fixed width. Height is not that important, since we're all used to vertical scrolling...

Have a nice day...
