thank you for reiterating that point... while we've finally gotten people to 
recognize the monitor *size* does not equate to resolution, we seem to still 
be having trouble getting people to recognize that screen resolution does 
not equate to *window* size...

a good article, that one... it also links to an article here on evolt.org, which 
offers both script to gather the info 
(http://evolt.org/article/list/17/2295/index.html), and the results of a 
sampling of users (http://www.evolt.org/article/list/20/2297/index.html)...  
there are some handy links in that second one, as well...
