1. How can I look at a website and determine how wide it is?As an example, going to this website: http://www.peterverkuilen.com/ I can download the banner graphic and check the width of it in FW, however, I'm not sure if there is html whitespace around the banner graphic itself, and if so, how much.
2. I just tried taking a screenshot of the banner on my Mac by dragging the screenshot tool around the banner and it showed up as 960px wide after opening the screenshot in FW, though when I download the actual graphic it is 980px wide. Anyone have any idea on how this is different?
Any info will be appreciated.
If you give false dimensions for an image in the HTML for the page, the browser will display the image at that size rather than the actual one. It's not a good idea to do that.
