Tips to make your designs work well on lower display resolutions.
Try avoid using too many floats.
Floating too many HTML elements can be a factor of your design looking inconsistent on lower display resolutions. If you need to use floats, have an upper div within the body section of your HTML document and set it as position: absolute so any div within it will float within the constraints of the upper div.
