AMEN! I get really annoyed at web pages formatted for the size of
someone else's display, or for the size they think is the right size
for a web browser window. "You mean everyone doesn't open their window
to fill the entire screen?" or "When I browse the web, I make my window
this size, so if you want to read my web pages, you must do the same."
I find that kind of thinking inexcusable.
