Set applet's width to browser's width

The width of an applet is set via the "width" attribute of the applet tag, which is specified in pixels. I would like the width of the applet to be dynamic, such that it will take up the entire width of the browser's window. When the browser is resized, the applet will resize accordingly. Can this be achived? Thanks.

You'd need to use JavaScript for that

objects is correct (width and height can be %).

To have mozilla browsers honor this, you must reload the page onResize:

<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
function resizer() {
      if(navigator.appName == 'Netscape') {
            history.go(0);
      } // end if
}
</script>
</head>

<body onResize="resizer();">
Your page's visual content.
</body>
</html>

Thanks. The solution from objects works for me. Somehow, CEHJ's solution doesn't seem to work.
