    Screen sizing

    Hi there
    Was wondering if anyone could help me out: I am just learning about HTML and using FrontPage (though I want to learn how to use Dreamweaver) and I was looking to find out what HTML code I could use in the beginning of my script which would allow users visiting the site to have the screen resized to fit their monitor - is there something I could put in? Would be greatly appreciated!

    It depends what you mean.

    As browsers are going to be, by default, the size the user wants them to be, then resizing the actual browser window should not be an issue. If you are using a popup-type window, then there are lots of 'detect resolution' scripts @ www.dynamicdrive.com

    if I have misunderstood, please clarify and I will try to help.

    Thanks for dynamicdrive.com - that's great. Could I ask you something else about related topic: in terms of a background image - if you dont want it to repeat itself, how would you do it? i.e. not to have it filling the screen with many versions of itself
    Many thanks

    Use style sheets , this goes in the <head> of your document -

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    background-image: url(myImage.gif);
    background-position: top right;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    </style>

    Simple Answer:

    DON'T DO IT

    I run 1280x960, with my browser window covering the left 2/3 of my screen. Once in a while I'll be surfing around and some website with JavaScripting will resize my window for me, usually to the whole screen.

    I hit the back key and I never return. People don't like websites that "force" a certain browser size on them, and I will not visit a site that dictates how my browser looks when I'm visiting.

    Build your site to fit within an 800x600 screen without side-scrolling, and leave the "porn-site" style javascripts behind
