    I am new to webpages but wanted to ask this question.
    In Frontpage. Is there a way when a website is made that it will convert and work on other screen resolutions.
    My screen is set to 1280 by 800 and the website was made like that and looks great.
    But when I go to someone using a 1024x768 or really anything else small like that. The page gets squeezed to the right.
    I did have a boarder on both sides. On my resolution there is about a inch border.
    But those other screen sizes it only shows a inch on the left side and the page is all the way to the right with no border. and then you have to scroll right and left...

    Well there are two options. To use percentages, these will automatically resize. An example can be seen here.
    Or you could create you page smaller and have the content centre. Here is an example of a page with the size set at 780px.

    Are you applying style with CSS?

    In that case, I would use percentages, and you can just resize your window, to see how it changes it, depending on the size of the browser.
