Ahh.  You're still living in the illusion that the Web is WYSIWYG.  It isn't.
Different browsers render things different ways.  How will your app act on a
browser that's twice as wide?  Half as wide?

Properly designed web applications are *not* done using Photoshop.  They're
constructed using sound design principles, to adapt to their environment.

Create functional markup, and style it with CSS.  Please.  If people had done
that properly, we wouldn't see this huge rush to now prepare "normal",
"mobile" and now "iPhone" versions of sites.  Gah!
