Hmm. Nah, you are probably right, if it's that wide you don't.

I have 1200, though, and I have the browser maximized, yes.
In fact, I have most windows maximized all the time. :) I definitely
prefer a fixed width for the content column in any case.

saw it: It might be worth setting the sizes in pt instead of px, so
that it works better with large font sizes. No biggie, though.
