Relative field width on the forum?

I have been today watching some video material in a small window on my laptop while simultaneuously browsing different forums. And as the laptop's displays is as small as it is, I've had to make the browser window smaller, like half of the display. By doing so I have noticed that on some forums the texts and other fields are relative, meaning that one sees the whole webpage width even in a smaller window. On others (like PF), there seem to be absolute field widths or some lower limits for them and this causes half of the website width to be out of view and this demands scrolling. Is this a feature of the forum software used, is it a conscious decicion or could it be changed?

Here attached are screen captures of the German DSLR forum with relative width and PF with seemingly absolute width. BTW, in case you're wondering about what's on that video, it's part four of BBC's genius of photography documentary series.

Just noticed that classic and simple skins are relative, while modern ones of both colours are absolute.

I had a nice long reply written, but I hit the wrong button on my phone and it vanished.

Here is the abridged version:
-the modern skins are relative ('liquid') in width but don't collapse past 1000 pixels because images are used in the navbar
-use either the simple skin, or the modern 'fixed' skins if you want to fit the forum contents into an 800px window

Hope this helps!

Also note that the two fixed skins are 1. Only available to site supporters and 2. Feature the older navbar layout
