maxWidth resizes but not maxHeight - Which is right?

Hi Mark,

Actually when this script is executed the width of the window does  
resize on it's own. I push the button and the new size is set to 800 &  
700 then I hit the button again and now the 650 & 450 are set AND then  
the width actually resizes to the 450 on it's own. Nothing else is  
touched except the button.

The button is a test for when a picture or web page is larger than the  
current size thereby allowing a resize button to drag to a new size  
for better viewing. But because the window auto resizes the width I  
have to deal with that.

I am testing to see these different sizes and how they will work with  
different images etc.

I guess from what you're saying that the window is not supposed to  
resize it self by itself. I am wondering what is could be causing this?
