The main reason to use pixel widths is because one often has images  
that are fixed pixel widths that would look wierd if the width  
changes. Your route requires more work but I agree with you in  

But I am having difficulties believing that your designer would rather  
have a pretty site than a readable site... unless he is a complete  
moron... ;)
