I'm working on a group project and trying to get my colleagues to submit a drawing regarding their vision for an online application; this application will be viewed through a PC. Although I suspect there is not an industry standard, I am certatin that there must be common approaches for sites with fixed-width layouts. I need to know the most common sense of proportions in the industry.
We are going to keep this prototype simple, and therefore will not be detecting browsers, screen widths etc. So, I figured I would ask this in a simple way with the hope of getting a simple answer:
What is the 'most common' width and height that webpages are being designed for most recently. It would be very helpful if I could site a source when I tell my coleagues why I chose a specific sense of proportions for them to base their drawings on.
Please note how I asked this question:
- I am not asking for the most common screen resolutions.
- I am not asking for the most common browsers.
I want to know what dimensions most websites are opting for in regard to fixed-size layouts. I know that people normally scroll and therefore height might not be part of a ~'standard'; in that case, I will settle for the most common width.
