But, one thing many clients utterly hate is a site that stretches across the screen making the line lengths too long for ease of reading. I agree, coming from a publishing industry background. It doesn't make any sense if the point is to develop a site that people will read, why make it hard to read?

What are the thoughts on it here?



Well, there are the users who hate a fixed width design (like me). I've found that my users who are concerned about the long line lengths invariably run all their windows maximised. Fixed width pages (which can't be resized) are the main reason I now run two monitors. Personally I figure if you're going to create a fixed width HTML page you may as well be using PDF because the end result is basically the same.
