Cameron Moll – Griding The 960
Cameron Moll recently redesigned his website to a width compatible with a 1024 x 768 pixel screens. I’ve started to become convinced that this is the way to go, as 800 x 600 resolution monitors slide even further into obscurity.
Anyway, Cameron recently posted some useful grid images that you can use in CSS design to see how if your containers are complying to your spec or if there’s a problem. You simply apply the image as the background image for the container element and then you can refer to it as you work. Highly useful!
I’m working on taking all my blogs to a 950px wide format in the near future, so I’ll be road-testing this technique in the weeks ahead!
