Welcome to our community, Jason
If you want crystal clear recordings that play back exactly as you recorded, you need to simply record a smaller dimension. If possible, resize the browser or application to a smaller dimension before recording.
Assuming that isn't possible, you have a couple of options.
1. After you record, click Project > Resize project and shrink the recording a little. Be advised that this will have a negative effect and your movie will lose quality. If you choose this approach and aren't sure how much you will be scaling down, always click File > Save As and work with a copy until you settle on what works best.
2. If you aren't overly concerned about the loss of quality, instead of using the HTML companion page, you could point directly at the SWF. There are a variety of issues with this, but it does work for some folks. If you still need or wish to use the companion HTML page, you could edit the properties so instead of specifying pixel values, it presents using percentages. 100% for example.
Hopefully something here either helped outright or caused you to formulate an idea that eventually does.
Thank you for the response. I ended up setting the resolution on my PC to 1280 x 768, setting the Captivate recording are to about 917 x 740. It ended up just showing the part of the screen that had the portion I was showing a demo for, and seems to be working very well. So using the smaller dimension, as you recommended, actually worked almost perfectly. Granted, it truncated one of the drop-down menus, but that is not a huge concern.
Thank you again for taking the time to respond!
