The problem is that lots of websites will have a 2-3" wide column of text in a 19" wide window, the rest of the browser window is blank.
This is even worse than super wide text.
if you let your text go the width of the browser window the user can narrow the window if they want. If you lock it to a really narrow column, the user can't widen it.
