I have some information laid out with a fixed width table in html. It looks fine on a regular monitor. When I display it on a wider monitor, or with a different resolution, I have extra unused space on the right. This, of course, makes sense.

The question is: what is the recommended method for allowing the text and images to fill out the rest of the screen width - especially where it will work with different monitors, resolutions and browsers?

Thanks.

Well, without seeing how your page looks, have you tried to make the table 100% wide? May look less good if it's a real data table and it's sparsely filled. Things can get too spread out too.

That works - thanks!
