Preparing for Widescreen: A good idea that’s going to become more and more popular as screen sizes exist in a much larger range of resolutions and aspect ratios than ever before.
I did a proof-of-concept once for something similar. I checked the width of the
screen window, then displayed or didn’t display a third column. I never did anything with it, but it worked well. I didn’t, however, capture the screen resize event like they do here.
(Why are they reloading the entire page on
screen resize? Why not just rerun the function that detected the screen resolution window width and loaded the stylesheet in the first place? What am I missing?)
