Hopefully quite a simple one...

I have an image (radial gradient) which is absolutely positioned top left and is 300px x 300px

I'd like to stretch the image to half the browser window (keeping aspect ratio if poss).

Something as simple as <img src=gradient.jpg width=150%> works in IE but not in mozilla. It also doesn't size to exactly half.

What's the best way to implement something like this?  (if i need to use js that's fine)

Perhaps something like the following:
<html>
<head>
   <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

      function resizeImage()
      {
          var img = document.getElementById('myImage');
	  img.width = document.body.offsetWidth / 2;
      }

   </script>
</head>
<body onload="resizeImage();">
   <img id="myImage" src="logo.gif" />
</body>
</html>

Open in new window
