Sorry to disagree about functionality of fixed width sites. If you reduce the browser's to a size smaller than the width of the site, you have to scroll all the way through the text. If I work on my Netbook I hate sites that do not reformat the text for a smaller screen and I have to scroll back and for to read through the text.

I could see the benefit for wide screens though. I do not know if there is a possibility to say "not bigger than max width" but reformat if screen is smaller. Might be a compromize.

Just my 2 cent
