thats leaving a huge 74px for scrollbars - you'll find that scrollbars take up about 16px, so a good round figure is 1000px... it divides easily into 4, and will fit.

a cool number is 960px because you can split it in many equal columns (even 16 x 60) :)

Yes, I'm just getting into grids and the work of mark boulton and subtraction. Found this nice tool also http://grid.mindplay.dk/ .

I'm not totally liking the 20px units though. Although I don't think it really matters too much.

What about 970px with 10px gutters and 10px margins

Anyway, where I am it's Friday night and I'm not looking at a screen any more today.

See you.

Andy
