Carina uses a 2-column fixed width css layout. The width of the main body is 840px, which will fit quite nicely into a 1024px display.
The header is quite high, the logo/link-to-homepage is centered.
The navigational area on the left is 220px wide, leaving plenty of room for longer anchor texts.
The footer has no set height, it'll expand as needed. The text in the footer is again centered.
