Here is my proposal for a redesign based on an analysis of my usage ;-). I have a 1600x1050 (or thereabouts), 20" (measured) diagonal, 17" across screen.
The left column has a 7/8" margin, 2 3/8" text area, and 1" gutter. These could be shrunk to say, 1/4, 2, 1/4, saving 1 3/8". The comment box is 8 1/2", message boxes are wider, but the extra width is not used if one uses hard returns in the comment box. In any case, the message boxes could be narrowed by 1 1/8". This would allow a right column of 1/4+2+1/4".
Let's say that by using non-metric units you have already lost me,
My bad. Im science context I have always used S.I units, and wish U.S. would switch. Just forgot here. Multiply everything by 2.4 for cm.
Or by 2.54, if you're using SI cm :)
