I want to create a simple home page narrow component where you could, for example, type a new account name and click save to create the record. I'm doing a more specific thing in reality but the base concept is the same.

I haven't created a VF page for this region before and don't know where to start. Are there specific dimensions you should lock to? Specific models I should follow? Does anyone have any good examples of a basic VF home page narrow component?

    There's nothing special about it, really. I recommend you start developing and see if you run into any specific issues.
