This layout is fine but even 960px is too wide and with a fluid layout  
you could
go down to the much more reasonable 730px (an older standard based  
leaderboard ads) as the minimum and it would display nicely for everyone
from there up whether they have a little notebook screen with the rez  
for easier reading or a Cinema display.
