RE: Javascript checks BODYelement.clientWidth before issuing html

Ralph - thanks for the response I was using LiveHTTPheaders and Paros
Proxy to try and trap the differences (with a valid cookie plugged into
the header using curl_setopt) but then I figured it didn't matter what
was in the headers since the script must obtain and store in a cookie
and re-check that a valid BODYelement.clientWidth exists.

The only way for this to exist is for the script to execute in a real
browser.

Am I making sense?

Tom

Can you trap the exchange between a browser and the server (e.g. with
Firefox + LiveHTTPHeaders), then simply replay that interaction?? Or
at least, steal the cookie that interaction generates?? Thereby
ignoring the width thingy...
