    Try saying that a few times over! :whistle:

    On a more serious note, I'm thinking of switching over to fixed width.

    What widths do you fixedy's use and can I have link to your site to see how it looks :)

    I use 992px which is the absolute limit if you want it to fit on a 1024px screen (due to browser scrollbar).

    I chose 992 as it's divisible by 8 - just my OCD at play there :D

    I have 1080px. To suit all my menus inside navigation :p So can't go with less px.

    I do see a couple major websites using 1200px.

    Are there any issues when using 1200px as max width ?

    Before I was using 1200px. No problems.

    As long as it is 'max-width: 1200px;' there is no problem. Anything that can display 1200px width or wider will just end up with some margin on each side.

    but will there be a scrollbar on smaller screens ?
    I guess it should not show a scrollbar, since it is responsive.... ?

    No scrollbar, since you are defining a max width. It is not the same as 'width'.
