Re: Typical screen resolution, these days (or, WHY IS CSS the way it is -- haven't we learned ANYTHING in ALL THESE YEARS no, guess we have not)?
The reason this is pressing is that CSS is truly not accommodating of liquid screen sizes/resolutions. Pretty depressing really. CSS was obviously designed by aesthetic totalitarians (Style Nazis), I must say.
I'm not sure where you would get this impression. Quite the opposite, some of the leaders in the movement to encourage the use of CS and standards are nto Nazis at all. For example, Jeffrey Zeldman says in one of his books to use CSS, but don't feel constrained by it. He recognizes the need for web developers to actually produce work on time and within budget, and advocates that often hybrid systems are the way to go.
That said, there are many examples of very liquid design. alistapart.com and sitepoint.com are but two excellent resources. there's also the very interesting csszengarden.com.
