Since I can't get started with WP until next weekend, I've been cruising the site, studying other blogs and trying to make design decisions.
One thing I've noticed that many sites are in this wider HD-type format. And http://www.dailykos.com actually offers you a CHOICE of viewing it wide or narrow!
I was planning to hold the line at 764 pixels wide--just enough to handle one of those giant banner ads without it looking as if had ramrodded in. What's the "official" width the wider format? And am I the only person left on earth who has to do extra scrolling to see it?
