I thought the blog referenced in there pretty much summed up my perspective:


We use some of the techniques she talks about for the sides, filling with something that enhances the message of the site whenever possible.

If something is faster to create (therefore, less expensive) and results in substantially equivalent quality and performance, we adopt it because we cannot justify the expense to our clients otherwise.

Setting up separate stylesheets is only an option if you have the budget to do it. My clients don't. My own sites are like the cobbler's kids - getting by on leftovers. I rarely have time to do anything except the most essential work on them, sometimes not even that. Some of our dynamic sites use a fluid or semi-fluid width layout, because we start with a template, but that often has to be constrained just to get it to work with the graphical elements the client wants.

It is really a matter of preference and time. If my clients chose to pay the additional time to build fluid-width sites, we'd do it. But they won't. So I don't.
