screen size

I am designing pages on a 17in monitor but expect it to be viewed on 15in monitors at some point. I hate scrollbars appearing on my pages. Has anybody got any tips short of running a 15in monitor along side my 17?
I am using Dreamweaver with tables set to 75% wide.

Well you can design it small, like 640x480, and center it in the page. Or, just set your monitor to 800x600 resolution and see what your page looks like.

I usually make the table no more than 730-750px width. If you put eveyrthing in there you should be fine. I always try to use a px value instead if a % because if you look at your site in different screen solutions and on different monitors, it will always look different and move images, text and other content around because the table always fits 75% of the screen for example. If you make your website for the smallest screen solution which would be like 800x600 (there is smaller but there aren't many of them) then you're fine.
