You can put everything inside a table.

<html>
<head>
<title>Title here</title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td>Content Here!</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Hope this help.

If you use DHTML, you can put whatever you need in layers, and do one of two options:
Have the material inside of the layer sized to a certain percentage instead of pixels.  Let's say %50.  Then you would put the vertical offset to %25 and it would always keep your layer centered.  You can also do the same thing with tables, only set you table sizes to percentages and then set the material inside of the table cells to be %100 percent of the cell.

Another solution is to use Macromedia Flash.  It load a movie that can automatically scale to fullscreen and have whatever alignment options you want.

You can use Behaviours for Body actions. Click on + in order to create new event. Choise "Open Browser window". Then You can point several parameters for Browser Window, such as Windows width and height and other new windows attributes. Dreamweaver automatically create proper script for creating new browser's window with needed characteristics.

You can use this

{ in the <HEAD> element paste this }
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function newWin(url){
window.open(url, 'windowName', 'fullscreen=1');
}
//-->
</script>

{ and in the <BODY> element paste this }
<a href="javascript:newWin('yourpage.html')">click here</a>

When you click this link the page 'yourpage.html' will be opened in a fullscreen window. And this will be really a fullscreen window, i.e. the Taskbar in Windows will disappear and the window will be without title.

The problem is that this works only for MSIE 4.0 and MSIE 5.0 (and better I guess).

If you want completely full screen, then you can get an exstension from macromedia's site. You will need to register. Goto http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/ and follow the link on that page which saids "New Exchange for Dreamweaver".  When you have registered, goto the drop down box and select browsers. There you will find MFX Fullscreen.  Download it. OO I almost forgot you will have to down load Macromedia Exstension manager. You will see the link to download it under the hyperlink to download MFX Fullscreen.
Hope this helps.

I think you should try it with the following java script...

<script language="JavaScript">

<!--
        function fullScreen() {
                if ((!document.layers) && (!document.all)) return;
                moveTo(0,0);
                resizeTo(screen.width, screen.height);
        }
        //-->

</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="fullScreen();" bgColor="#D1DBEB" text="#000000">
