Hardly by people that would be interested in Zope, right?

Trying it again on a 1200x1024 screen, with a window not full-screen so it's more like 1024 (my usual browser side), I still get sizable blue on both sides.

Anyway, I think the important decision here is to make it readable.
And that means that the content column should not fill out the whole
page. On a 1600 pixel widescreen that looks like shit. And the content
column is a good size now, and it looks fine on my 1024 screen. On my
widescreen, it looks weird, but not as weird as it would look with
wider content column.

It seems to me we're debating a strawman argument. I don't think anybody is debating the text should stretch fully. All I am saying: with the current style, I see a lot of blue that does nothing. I think there are ways to make this less of a problem:

* make the text area wider. Still fixed, but wider.

* add a sidebar on the left like in version 3 design 1.

* there are ways to make the design flow up to a point, but not all the way. I don't know how hard this is to accomplish, but I believe I've seen it done.

This design is good. In fact, it's great. If we really want to use up
more screen space, we could move the "extras" to a separate column,
but I like the current way better.

I'd prefer the extras to be in a separate column indeed, and I like them as they are in version 3 of design 1.
