In Dreamweaver MX 2004...the dropdown menu on the status bar (right corner) of the document window...showing actual pixel dimensions vs. maximized screen resolution...
...for the 1024 X 768 SR...I'm showing actual pixel dimensions of 955 X 600.
is that not correct...???
I have always gone under the assumption that those figures are 1003 X 567 (& my pages always seem to work fine, dimensionally, w/ those #'s).
Is 955 X 600 the default for DW...or did my settings somehow get inadvertantly changed...???
Browser chrome eats up approx. 30px on each side. So if you're building a page to fit in a 1024px wide display without horizontal scrollbars, a page width of 970px or below is usually a good target.
Do not know for MX2004 but in general the pixel dimension is the available area in the 'average' browser setting, which can safely be ignored by most people as no one knows this to any degree of accuracy.
The 955x600 was the default setting for most 'popular' browser size, and to some degree still is.
