vfowler on 2011-11-17A resource you may find useful is the 1140px Grid created by Australian designer Andy Taylor. The 1140 grid fits perfectly into a 1280 monitor. On smaller monitors it becomes fluid and adapts to the width of the browser. The grid consists of twelve columns, which can be evenly divided into columns of two, three, four or six. In terms of browser support, Andy’s grid works in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE7, and IE8. IE6 (there’s always one, isn’t there?) doesn’t support max-width, so the grid doesn’t fix to 1140px. It spans the full width of the browser.
