No offense taken.

I found that most people use 800 x 600; thus the problem. I tried
1024 x 768 and couldn't see a thing.

It will probably get worse for you because 800x600 usage is around 10% and dropping so less and less design is focused towards it. 1024x768 is pretty much the minimum standard.

Davido, that does make sense, considering that my sampling was mostly among
my own age group, and internet users probably average much younger and more
tech savvy!

But I'll just keep using my "lowest common denominator" method.

To clarify, there are two kinds of "scroll proofing"; the pictures and the text.
Keeping the pictures small prevents the problem.
Hitting the "carriage return" (see how old I am!) fixes it.

Happy New Year!

I had no idea it was possible to know such things. So much to learn!

I set mine to 1024 x 768 a while ago. Lasted about a week and switched back
to 800 x 600. But I'm 55 and have to use reading glasses. I do better working
on larger things -- like buses!

I want to know who has the monster monitor and fancy video card the lets them run 1680x1050 and 1600x1200! I finally broke down and got a PCI GeForce 5200 video card that will only run 1024x768 with any sort of reasonable frame rates. Quad SLI with a 31 inch LCD, anyone?
