Safe Size Table Grids

Table grids allow web designers greater control over the placement of images and text on a web page. However, one drawback of table grids is that text in table grids don’t wear at the end of the browser window but at the edge of the cell. So if we use table grids for laying out pages, we have to bear in mind that if the table grid does not display in full width on every monitor, the users will have to scroll back and forth to read every line of text. This will frustrate the user. Hence when using table grids, make sure that the grid is not wider than the width of the lowest resolution monitor in use. Today 980 pixels is considered to be the width of a safe size table grid.
