Hello,

Some of our users (more than most sites) are elderly. What would be the proper site width for a health site such as this?

We want to go as wide as possible without creating a problem.

width = 800px. This is safe for most older monitors. In my experience (owner of computer repair shop) most elderly people set their monitor resolution to 800x600.
