Automatically maximize a new window

How can I programmatically cause a window I've created in the browser to be maximized?  This javascript will run under Netscape 3.01 on a kiosk where the user cannot maximize the window, so I want to maximize it when I create it.  Here is the javascript I use to create the window:        msgWindow=window.open("demo3.html","demoWindow","toolbar=no,width=100%,height=100%,directories=no,status=no,scrollbars=no,resize=yes,menubar=no")
I am also writing Java Applets for this .html, so if there is any way to pass my window to java and maximize it there, that would be fine also.
Thanks SO much.

Try this:

window.open("demo3.html","demoWindow","toolbar=no, width="+this.width+",height="+this.height+",directories=no, status=no,scrollbars=no,resize=yes,menubar=no")

Note:
this way is less bytes:
window.open("demo3.html","demoWindow","toolbar=0,width="+ this.width+",height="+this.height+",directories=0,status=0, scrollbars=0, resize=1,menubar=0")

yes = 1
no = 0

Hope it Help!
