Be aware that long lines are hard to read. (That's the reason why
newspapers are typeset in multiple columns.) When it comes to screen
resolution and web design, this is a real issue. One option (and my
preferred) is to fix the width of the html and center the whole thing.
Wasted space and screen resolutions are not good points, because they
are very subjective and likely to change.
