Very worth reading

Just right

I've found a hacky way to get around the IE resize discrepancy:

For IE:
<script language="javascript">
to_set_W = 300;
to_set_H = 200;
w = document.body.clientWidth;
h = document.body.clientHeight;
offW = to_set_W - w;
offH = to_set_H - h;
window.resizeBy(offW, offH);

IE's clientWidth and clientHeight properties are read-only; the only way to change size is through resizeTo() and resizeBy(). The hack involves reading the current clientWidth and clientHeight and then figuring out by how much it is wrong and then resize accordingly, fixing the difference.

The result is that the clientHeight and clientWidth are adjusted to be the desired dimensions, good for framing known dimensions (e.g. an image), without worrying about the window's decorations (such as menus, toobars etc.).
