in thread A new chatterbox flavour

I had a hard time making the chat buffer fill the window and have scrollbars on it when the content grows, so I just made it a fixed size. Change the 480px in the CSS if you need something smaller for now.

Thanks for the compliments and feedback. :-)

    Yeah, that's a pain. I did it for the Krang website for an iframe. Here's how:

    function reSize() { var iframe = document.getElementById("ifrm"); if (window.innerHeight) { // Netscape compatible iframe.height = window.innerHeight - 150; } else if( document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientHeight ) { //IE 6+ in 'standards compliant mode' iframe.height = document.documentElement.clientHeight - 150; } else if( document.body && ocument.body.clientHeight ) { //IE 4 compatible iframe.height = document.body.clientHeight - 150; } }

    I called that function like this:

    <body onload="reSize()" onresize="reSize()">

    I don't remember where I got this voodoo from but I sure as heck didn't come up with it myself!
