Resize div element according to browser window width

Hi
Does anyone know how to do the following.

I have a div element that I want to resize according to the width of the visitors browser.

So if the browser window is say 1024px or less, I would want the div to be 100px less wide than the window size

If the browser is greater than 1024, I want the div to be 1000px max.

It would need to work across all major browsers

Any help on this would be apprciated.
