according to statistics most of the users have 1024 x 728 resolution on their screens. but always is nice to have little space for styled margins. consider that users prefer to scroll down than to the sides. also consider the option of using percentages (%) sizes instead of fixed (px).

in conclusion, if you dont want to use "width: 100%" dont go over "width: 900px", and vertically "height:600px" is fine, but you know, some wiki pages extends way down and still they're fine.

Yes, try to aim for a 900-950 pix width on the main container of your pages so they can fit in a 1024 pixels screen (and leave enough space for margins and the scroll bar).

Regarding the height, it is not recommendable to have more than two "screens" of height. So unless it's strictly necessary to have a very "tall" page, I'd stick with a max height of about 1200 pix.
