I have developed web pages in the screen resolution 800x600, but my Client's using 1024x768 resolution, so that web page's not displaying properly, can any one tell me how to control the page resolution, like i wanna keep my pages in 800x600 resolution if the client using 1024x768 resolution.

Thanks & Regards

Well, you can't control the screen resolution of a random surfers box in the internet (you can, if your product is for a closed group, intranet etc). You can, however, resize the browser window to 800x600 size, and keep it at that size (using dirty javascripting on page load)

Another option would be to design web pages that look OK at any resolution (within reason, anyway.) There isn't all that much difference between 800x600 and 1024x768; surely you can design things to look OK either way.

As this isn't Meaningless Drivel, but is in fact about HTML and JavaScript, I'm going to move this to the HTML and JavaScript forum for further discussion.

If you use CSS with a fluid layout it will fit the screen for any resolution.
