Fully scalable web sites are not quite there yet mostly due to  
unscalable images, but em and percentages have come a long way for  
doing this.

Another method here could be to use jquery and the dimensions plugin,  
but that adds more work. I've been playing with this technique for my  
personal site to arrange sidebars based on window width. Things move  
without rewrapping text as the window size increases above 1000 ( http://funroe.net 
  ) this is only an experiment, so not perfect by any means.

It could be considered overkill for the Dashboard though and something  
like that should degrade nicely if implemented.
