OK; untested, no error-checks, completely off the top of my head:

    window.onload = function() {
        var newDiv = document.createElement('div'),
            body = document.body;
        newDiv.style.height = '100%';
        newDiv.style.width = '100%';
        while(body.firstChild) newDiv.appendChild(body.firstChild);
