I have a asp.net application with a link on its master page that opens a Jquery dialog.  I want to set the dialogs max-height to the height of the content section of the master page so that it will be no higher then the content section.  The content of the dialog will vary based on the user who is logged in.  Some times it will require less room then the height of the content and sometime it will require more. The problem is that the dialogs actual height is always 43px more then its max-height  This difference is the total of the dialogs padding and the  height of its title bar.  In this instance the dialog extends 43px outside of the content area.  I have subtract 20 and 23 from the max-height but that's pretty sloppy and it messes up another calculation I do to determine the y position of the dialog so that the dialog is vertically centered in the content area so I have to subtract 23 there as well. Apparently the max-height of a dialog is only the max-height of it's content and doesn't take into account the title bar or padding.  I'd like to be able to do this with out using literal numbers so that if those numbers change in the future I don't have to track down every place they were used.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.
