How do you make your website (menu) etc shrink or stretch if you make the window smaller or bigger, ie for example if you have a 15" monitor it look perfect and then if u see the site on a 17" monitor is doesnt fit the screen?

is there a coding?

As I normall use 1024 ratio for size of background?

What am I doing wrong/
Please look at my site:

Thanks for the help:)

It has nothing to do with monitor size, only the size people have their browser windows at. If your website is 1024px wide, it's not going to fit in a browser that is maximized in a 1024 resolution due to the extra chrome the browser has on each side.

Your website is only about 700px wide and fits perfect in a 800*600 resolution even, looks great to me, so I'm not sure what the problem is :)

you need a fluid design so the css or tables expand

you need to use % in your widths instead of px
