This script works in IE5 and NS4.6.  I can't vouch for it in other browsers.

function scr() {
      window.resizeTo(screen.availWidth, screen.availHeight)
      alert(screen.availWidth + ", " + screen.availHeight)

<body onload="scr()">

Thanks very much

I'm half way to my dream of an adjustable image-map.

Please submit this as an answer to get the points

I have another question. Maybe you can help with that also.


Glad to help.  I look at questions here all the time, so I will probably catch your other question.  Unfortunately, I am not real big on image maps.  I am sure there are others around here who will be able to assist.
