You will need to load your page in frames:

<html>
<head>
</head>
<frameset rows="100%,*" frameborder="no" border="0">
<frame src="your_current_page.html" scrolling="no">
</frameset>
</html>

You might want to change the opening frameset tag to:

<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0" frameborder="no" framespacing="0">

There is no way to do it without using frames?

It is generally not a good idea to disable scrollbars.  You cannot be sure what size screens your users are going to have.  Hiding something off-screen (for example)usually backfires.  What is it you really want to accomplish?

Frames is the only way of doing what you want (AFAIK).

I'm trying to make a popup window that has no menus or toolbars and no scrollbars.  It is a fairly small window.  I don't think that I am going to run into people having their screen resolution set too low.

Ah!!

Well in that case you can use "scrollbars=0" in the option string for the window.open call.

Look at:
