Unaesthetic table overspill on download page

Well, it’s unaesthetic, silly and perhaps somewhat cute. A simple width gone astray. Picture says more than any amount of words coming from my mouth:

That looks to be a window size issue. Are you looking at at a resolution of 1024x768?

Yep, I made sure of that. That’s why the full screen is included in the screenshot.

Right. I think the best way to fix it is to change the site template to be wider.

Hm. Why should a high resolution be necessary? Wouldn't it be better to make the page as resolution-neutral as possible? Some monitors (such as mine) have a maximum resolution of 800x600.

Exactly. The standard is 800x600, and the site should work fine under it.

Ok. I checked the svn and undid revision 4530 locally. No problem there.

It seems to be the the following code that breaks my nice screen estate:
table style="width: 600px"
tbody width="50%"

Though I’m too tired hunting down the css file to check the actual margins at play.

I agree with Ces, we shouldn't have any fixed widths on our site.

Regards.

Definitely. Hard coding such large things is always bad.
