So I'm working with some colleagues on a site redesign, and have
encountered something interesting.  According to Google Analytics, the
screen resolution of most of our visitors is 1024x768.  The old 800x600
resolution is pretty far down on the list.

Still, seems like most fixed width sites are still 800 pixels wide or
thereabouts.  Is it too soon to design toward 1024?

Thanks for any thoughts/comments!
