I'm using FrontPage 2002 & I'm trying create a page that when opened will only open to a specified size & have no visible menu's or scroll bars.  I'd appreciate any help with this.

Hi there.

You do this from the link to the page.

Put this little JavaScript in your <head> section:

<script language="JavaScript">

<!--//BEGIN Script

function new_window(url) {

link =,"Link","toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,width=600,height=500,left=40,top=50");

//END Script-->

Then you can call your links like this:

<a href="javascript:new_window('')">Canada 411</a>

Set a feature to 0 if you want to disable it.  Change the width & height parameters to the size of window you want to open and the left/top to where you want it to appear on the screen.

I should explain a little bit more about what the final outcome will be.  I'm trying to get a cd I'm creating to "autorun" a .html file set to a paticular size w/no menues showing.  From this .html page you will have the option of opening the website from the cd-rom or installing an .exe file.

Aye, there's the rub.

AFAIK, Unless you have your autorun hitting a link, you cannot control how the browser opens.  That is a user setting.

how are you calling the html from the auto run?  Maybe we can work with that (but I don't know much about autoruns so bare with me.)
