Hmmm.  If I recall correctly, this code worked for me once:

<script language=JavaScript>
function openFull() {
    ns4 = (document.layers)? true: false
    if (ns4) {
        h = screen.height
        w = screen.width

    else {


This code goes in the calling page, NOT NewPage, and it will open NewPage
fullscreen.  Just use this:

<A href="javascript://" ONCLICK="javascript:openFull();">
      Open Full Screen Window

in the calling page.

I found this code in a page I made once.  No guarantees it works. :)
