Hi Denis,

The terminology below, as well as in the subject line appears to be mixed up
slightly. "Pages" and "browsers" are separate entities.

Not possible, I'm afraid. You may have seen this happening before, but it is
not a valid thing to do and many browsers will not obey the request. I
suggest you think about another idea.

Do you mean you want to browser to be forced to lie in the middle of the
screen? Again, this is not possible. There are O/S- or/and browser-specific
hacks, but they should be discarded altogether. Not only will this not
necessarily work, but it will also annoy the site visitor/s. Leave it to
the window manager and browser renderer to make choices, based on the
user's preferences.

I hope I did not appear bitter. I am rather certain, however, that others in
this groups would assimilate and support this disposition. What you are
trying to achieve is where many Web designers misunderstand the Web and are
bound to annoy their audience, as well as crawlers sometimes.
