If you don't want your page to be resized when browser window is resized, you need to set your page width to an absolute value.

Many Webmasters use TABLE tags to set page width to a fixed value. But it is actually easier to use DIV tags and CSS definitions to set your page width to a fixed value. All you have to do is to insert a DIV tag right after the BODY tag, and set a width this DIV tag, as shown in the following HTML document:

<html><head>
<style type="text/css">
  DIV.page {width: 7.0in}
</style>
</head><body><div class="page">
<H1>Page with Fixed Width</H1>
<p><script language="JavaScript">
  for (i=0; i<100; i++) {
    for (j=0; j<10; j++) {
      document.write(j+' ');
    }
  }
</script></p>

</div></body></html>
