I am not sure whether or not you are aware of this, but when it comes to using a fixed width template in Sitefinity it causes problems when it comes to trying to add controls.
I am not going to get into a semantic discussion about what screen size people should be designing their webpages for. But I have a particular client that wants their website designed for 1024 x 768, fair enough they have paid their money.... now I am upgrading their website to Sitefinity 3.0 so they can see what it looks like and start familiarizing themselves. Now when I set the width of my template to 968 for example when it comes to edit the page on a computer that also has a resolution of 1024 x 768 there isn't enough room for the Add Controls Div and my template.
Now I fixed this simply by setting the z-index of the div that my template is wrapped in to -1 and that solved the problem. I thought I would just let you know for your consideration, I am not sure if this is the best resolution but it works for me so far...
