I don't think less than 800x600 is unrealistically small. I have a 21" CRT
with 1600x1200, and I routinely have browser windows with widths less than
800. Why? So that I can have two windows side by side on my screen. Add in
room for the window borders and scroll bars, you're significantly less than
800 width.

For this reason I recommend a minimum width of no more than 750. Actually,
the smaller the minimum you can get the better.
