On a related note, I've written a little package which combines java, cgi, and
javascript to open browser windows in sizes relative to the client's monitor
size.  It's still a little buggy and the documentation isn't complete but it
allows you to compose for a certain browser aspect ratio (shape) without
restricting you to the lowest common denominator (640x480). Info on this can be
found at:


I found that when creating pages using tables and frames, I can create
compositions that still look good when the window is scaled up to fit a larger
monitor or down to fit a smaller one.
