twentyten theme single column width

is it just me? why if you select the one column, no sidebar page template on the new default theme, is the content area the same width as if there was a sidebar?

The styling: .onecolumn #content

is limiting the content width to 640px... So you end up with a relatively narrow content column with a large amount of whitespace (half sidebar width) on either side...

Why not make that .onecolumn #content styling width be 100% so the single column format actually uses the available width?

can't imagine this is intentional...

This is by design. The theme's content width is designed to be a set 640 pixels wide for comfortable reading ("Choose a Comfortable Measure," The Elements of Typographic Style) and reliable image alignment between the WYSIWYG editor and the live design.

lol - okay, but no use removing sidebars then... unless one likes empty white space...

I've found that love of white space isn't the worst reason to do something. :) But there was a specific point: a request for an alternative page template to help users and budding theme builders understand the page templates feature. A page that removes the sidebar is about the simplest possible example of one.

understand - wasn't for me. just prepping for our users that will ask how do they make our plugin (it's a forum) use all the available content width.
