window.open to Make Popup Fill Available Screen Size

In IE6, I want to make a JS popup automatically detect and fill the available screen (except for the Windows taskbar area at the bottom of the screen--I'm not looking for the IE "fullscreen" that literally covers the entire monitor).  I tried this:

function fullWindow() {
window.open('http://www.example.com', 'mywindow', config='width=screen.availWidth,height=screen.availHeight,left=0,top=0,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizeable=no');
}

But it only opens to about half of the screen size.  It seems like javascript is ignoring the "'width=screen.availWidth, height=screen.availHeight".  How can I make this open to all available height and width?

Well, I figured it out. The code below works. Turns out the config parameters won't read screen.availWidth and screen.availHeight inside the single quotes, so have to put the parameters into a variable and call it like config = cfg.
function fullWindow() {
 

var wth = screen.availWidth;

var hgt = screen.availHeight;

hgt = hgt - 49;
 

var cfg = "width=" + wth + ",height=" + hgt + ",left=0,top=0,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizeable=no";
 

window.open('http://www.example.com', 'name', config=cfg)

}

Open in new window

Of course, the window identifier ('name' in the above code) does not have to be 'name', and  the hgt = hgt - 49 might need to be different on other monitors. On mine, subtracting 49 prevented the height from covering the Windows task bar.
