How to write scripts to auto resize an image banner to fit browser screen

Hey guys,
I am a database person and have limited skills in web development, I hope you guys can help me out here.  I am working on a webpage in MS Front Page, so far I have a top banner that is really long, so if I open up the page in a smaller screen, about 1/4 of the banner image will get cut off.

I don't know if there is any scripts that I can write in html or javascript that will automatically resize the top banner so that no matter how big or small user screen is, the full banner can still be displayed properly.

I only have this very basic html code right now =(
<img border="0" src="home.jpg" width="1493" height="376">

You can do it, but it will not scale in a pretty way... either like this:

<img alt="" src="home.jpg" width="100%" />

This will keep the aspect ratio. You can also keep the height fixed, like this:

<img alt="" src="home.jpg" width="100%" height="376">

(The border attribute is deprecated, and the alt attribute is required. See

The only pleasing way to do this is to edit the image in photoshop, or the free Irfanview, and rescale it to a width of 640 pixels (and matching height), and save that image and use it in a TD or DIV with the width of that TD or DIV as 100% -- to scale the image at 100% will look bad on most browsers.

Thanks guys, width=100% works for me as I decided to only strech the red lines below the picture so the only that changes with different resolution is the line, I just kept picture centred
