Twitter Bootstrap responsive layout with 1000px max width

I want to use Twitter Bootstrap as the base CSS for building a site that needs to be 1000px max width.  I believe the default Bootstrap layout width is 1170px.

What modifications do I need to make in order to specify the 1000px width and also still use the fluid columns with class="span4" etc?

Many thanks!

acc. To me thats not good... To filter from the default... But if you want try this...

body { 
max-width: 1000px !important;
.container { 
max-width: 100% !important;
margin: 0 auto;

Open in new window

Put the above in the end..
    <div class="container-fluid">
          <div class="row-fluid">

Open in new window

Thanks for the reply.  So do you think the fixed width should be 1170?  ie. It's a problem to use 1000px width?

Yes. Its bootstrap's default and we should not change it as it may directly or indirectly affect other things...

You should  be able to make the container width what ever you want.  Then as long as you are using the row-fluid the span's are % so you should be good.
