RE: CSS layouts for different screen resolution

Maybe not their screen resolution, because you don't know how wide they have
their browser regardless of their resolution. For example, I have my
resolution at 1152 x 864 but I only use 2/3 of the width for my browser so
if you're "customizing" your page for me it won't fit in the way that I
prefer to use my browser.

But you could do it based on the size of their window

another example somewhere, but this is all I could find.

Just a thought.

I'd say you could do that, but additionally provide a fluid layout option.
Also, you'll need an obvious, accessible stylesheet switching mechanism.
