Making Everything Visible by Targeting to Browser Size

You learned in the section on Autostretching that the size of the viewer’s browser window has a bearing on whether or not all the flashy design elements you use to create a page, such as layout tables and layers, appear in their entirety in a browser window. Making sure your page will appear optimally in specific browser sizes is also a good idea for other reasons. Even though 19-inch and 21-inch monitors are becoming more affordable, you can’t guarantee that all of the visitors to your Web site will have them. You should always assume that most of your visitors will have smaller monitors, with 17-inch, or even 15-inch screens. Also, while some of your viewers will have their monitors set to 800 × 600 screen resolution, others will be working at different resolutions.

FrontPage has the ability to target a Web page to a specific browser window size, or a specific screen resolution. This lets you evaluate how your site will look in different combinations of browsers and resolutions. To test a specific combination, click View, Page Size, and choose a resolution from the submenu that appears (see Figure 11-12).
