has an IE only hack that could help in your problem. Detect if there is a
horizontal scrollbar - if so make window wider. Ditto for vertical scrollbar.

There are still a lot left to be desired of w3c DOM implementations in all
browsers. For example - if you were to place both your image and
descriptive text inside a DIV tag, its height and width are null unless you
explicitly set it via CSS (this is I presume because you get its height and
width using stylesheets also - elementObject.style.height). Checking this
just now reveals the same in Phoenix. So no, I can't see any way to do what
you want in current browsers.
