question about page dimensions

I am in the process of designing a new homepage for a site in
Image-Ready. (The site was designed using GoLive 5, the URL is
http://www.exceptionalchildnetwork.com/.) However, I am confused about
what page size to use. The audience will primarily be the parents of
special needs children, who have 14-inch or possibly 17-inch
monitors. Also, the client has a 14-inch monitor at work, and is convinced
that this is the standard size monitor--despite my efforts to convince her
otherwise. . . :) So I will be designing the homepage to fit on a 14-inch
monitor, for both Windows and Mac users, using both IE and NN.
Does anyone have any standard dimensions that they use for page size given
the above? I have heard many different answers to the question. . . . one
web design class I took said design for 612 pix w x 326 h. Another said
design for 595 w x 295 h. . . My brother suggested I design for 580 h x 450
w. . . Web design in a Nutshell suggests the minimum live space to design
for would be 612 x 315. . . .
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
