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.
