780 or so pixels so that your website fits into an 800x600 resolution.
Whilst testing my own redesign of my website, I was in 800x600
resolution and went to the BBC website and was surprised to see that I
had to scroll horizontally.
Is this no longer advised by w3c (or whoever), or are the BBC just
electing to ignore it?

Re: Maximum page width
That is probably a good maximum size for an image, unless your site is a

not page width.)
Screen resolution is unimportant. Mine is 22" (1680px) wide. Do I have a
maximized browser window? No. Not hardly ever. I usually have at least
two windows of various types open side-by-side.
The W3C doesn't care a whit how wide your web pages are. A lot of us
developers/webmasters do though, and in this century, fixed width is
