Is it better to design a website based on 800x600 or 1024x768 screen?

I think most are optimised for 800 x 600. I don't know the reason why though.

800*600 is the minimum i think.

I prefer mine in 1024*768 You can get more info on a screen....

There are still a lot of people who use screens at 800x600 though I wish they would push them up a bit!

Like Pilch implies it is a bit better for a designer to do it at a higher resolution but remember your site will either look poor or involve lots of scrolling for users with small screens.

just remember, you can't please all the people all the time, so why not please yourself...

also keep in mind that some graphics, mainly graduated tints, that look ok at 1024 x 768 do not carry well on 800 x 600

In Dreamweaver I can set a table to be autostretch instead of setting the dimensions in pixels. Dreamweaver then creates a spacer image that is needed for autostrtech tables to display correctly.

I don't know if this is good web design practise or not but it seems to work ok.
