automatically sizing browser windows - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

does anyone know how to set up a webpage so that it fits onto different sized computer screens? I am designing my site so that you don't ever have to scroll the page. When I open the site on other computers, however, the site is way too big to fit on the screen. any ideas?...

    use this to resize your window:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    resizeTo(x,y);
    </script>

    and to remove scrollbars:

    <style type="text/css">
    body { overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden; }
    </style>

    i use this method and it works great.

    fmeenz,

    Can I use the same script to open a browser window to 100% of the screen? I
    have a client that wants his site to fill the screen both up and down. If this
    script will work, what would I ad to it to make it work?

    Thanks for any help.

    Mike

    Think carefully about doing this. Many people will leave such a site
    immediately. You change my browser settings when I enter, and you do not
    change them back when I leave. This is often regarded as rude behavior.
