How do I create an image that looks the same on any monitor or resolution?

Question:
I have a monitor resolution set to 640x480. When I see the image on a monitor with a resolution of 800x600, it looks different. How do I create an image that looks the same on any monitor or resolution?

Answer:
The short answer is that you can't, at least not easily.

Some page elements (for example, tables, or alignment of graphics) will scale to fit the size the user's monitor (or more accurately, the browser window). Other elements (graphics, for example) are pixel-oriented and do not automatically scale. This is the challenge of Web page design: to design pages that behave gracefully under various circumstances, including several different browser versions. A lot of experimentation is required, along with fine tuning. There is no easy out.
