how to resize a browser window dynamically ?

I need a JavaScript solution for window resize problem that would work consistently in 3.0+ browsers. Is there any way to have a JavaScript function that would resize a window when, let's say, a user clicks on a button ?
It's ok if window content is reloaded. However, it's not OK to close and reopen this window.

resizeTo(width, height) will only work in 4.x browsers.

In other browser there's nothing to do, as far as I know.

So the button would be like
<FORM><INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" VALUE="Resize" onClick="resizeTo(300,70)"></FORM>

No, there is no way to resize in 3.x The only way would be to simulate resizing which would require opening a new window with the new size parameters and the same content and closing the calling window. A little flashing effect when the windows open and close but the user would probably see that as the window resizing.

Actually, hold on. Did you ever work with Visual Studio 98 ?

No. Why do you ask that?

Never mind. If you were, I'd ask you a question about some funky thing in Visual Studio that we're having problems with, but it will make no sense since you don't know the program...
