It's reasonable if you are lazy.  Go over your HTML code and




You will have a page that looks the same in your browser, but
will auto-size for other configurations.  If you have nested
tables, those will also need to be converted from fixed pixels
to percentages as well.

Most HTML on the Web is just plain sloppy.  This is one
of the reasons browsers have to be bulky--they need to 
make allowances for crappy HTML.  Are you valid?
