well, no, your math seems right... are you just looking for math 
double-checking?  if not, then my other comment stands, my 
window borders tend to be smaller... and if a user on a win95+ 
machine has big fonts (like my folks), the title bar can be bigger... 
etc... but in general, your math and assumptions seem ok...

here's an idea, make the page... post it here... get some feedback 
from the folks who'll actually visit it and give you their feedback... 
even if you're only doing it to find out how big of a Flash movie you 
can stuff in there...

not a bad thing, just remember to trim those footers and other 
unnecessary parts of the post to which you are replying...
