ye i to use the scroll wheel to zoom in but it just gets a bit annoying as i am about 6ft away from the screen due to it being at the end of my bed and me laying down with my head obviously 6ft away. ill have a play anyway.
PCA will normally have a black border at both edges, as it is a fixed width site - ie it stays the same number of pixels wide irrespective of how your screen resolution is set. The more horizontal pixels you are set to, the wider the black strips will be.
It looks about 80 pixels wide to me.
Some web designers do it that way as it means the page always looks how they want it to look, and doesn't keep changing width, and potentially layout, as variable width designs do.
Many professionally composed sites are fixed width, and they may be centred (like PCA) or left aligned.
