The 960 Grid System CSS framework website, offers a nice explanation on why using a 960-pixel page width:
All modern monitors support at least 1024 × 768 pixel resolution.
960 is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20, 24, 30, 32, 40, 48, 60, 64, 80, 96, 120, 160, 192, 240, 320 and 480.
This makes it a highly flexible base number to work with.

I’ve been designing web pages with a default width of 955 pixels for a long time, and I always had a hard time dividing the width in useful modules, since this number isn’t a joy to play with.

Perhaps this might be obvious to some, but struck me as a very useful tip.

Hope you feel the same.
