document.body.width proportional frames

gdean used Ask the Experts™
I want to build a frameset proportional to the available screen widths.  Netscape worked easily "innerWidth", but netscape relys on the document.body.clientWidth call.  Which wont work in a frameset document, I'm assuming since there is no body.  Is there any other way that i can detec the available width in IE6?
