Forget all that pixel tweaking and learn to create pages where the elements CAN shift without ruining the meaning. The reality of Web pages is that the user will NOT see what you see, except by accident, so the designers have to adapt to it. If you came out of paper-based graphics design, you have to give up a lot of what you were taught and learn design techniques that can deliver the content with a minimum of ugly pages.
