Unfortunately, Bill, this is a recognized bug in the Mac implementation of Javascript and 
should not occur with the Win95 version of NS. This has been a topic of on-going discussion 
at the JS development newsgroup at Netscape. We are told by the great Mozilla themselves 
that this should be corrected with NS 2.1 / Mac (which should also include Java).

I too have noticed some odd behavior about the resizable characteristic. What I have seen is 
that even if drag a window larger than what it was when openned, the text, graphics, etc., 
won't realign within the window to the larger dimensions. I was hoping, as I suspect you 
were too, that resizable=no wouldn't allow the window to be expanded or contracted at all. 
I'll see if I can get this clarified from Netscape.
