>The screen resolution detection script I found at HITBOX.com & modified it a
>bit, Are there any suggestions:

It's better to do capability detection than browser type and version 
detection ... if you want to use screen.width you can say

if (screen && typeof screen.width == 'number') {
   // then you know you know screen.width will return
   // a number regardless of the browser

Takes less code, too.

An alternate suggestion: It looks like you're already requiring 
Flash, and a great thing about Flash is it can scale itself to window 
size ... so maybe just make everything you're having the size 
problems with Flash and use percentages for all your sizes.
