PowerStore Template/Pages - CSS: Why 1019px width?

Hi guys,

I was just wondering what the thinking was behind the decision to make the pages of PowerStore 1019px wide?

As around 50% of all screen resolutions today are still 1024px wide, (and around 65% are 1024 or less) this means that the store forces a horizontal scroll bar to appear on the majority of browsers, so one of the first tasks a designer has to do is to either lose the drop-shadow effect or else take a images to Photoshop and fiddle with the stylesheets before he/she can begin on the store itself.

You just needed to chop a dozen px off the width to avoid this problem!
