I have quite happily been using the following code to hide the status bar of a modal window in a web application -

ShowModalDialog(URL,winname,"center:yes;dialogheigh:100px;dialogwidth:100px;scroll:no;status:no;unadorned:yes")

But with the great and wonderful XP SP2 it seems that this now does not work!!! And I am now missing the bottoms off half of my modal windows.

I know I can increase the height of the modal window, but is there any way around this using javascript anymore?

thanks
