Finding Browser Window Height

Here is a nice script, part of a larger section on getting window size/positions and scroll data out of various browsers.  This page really has a lot of good information.

function alertSize() {
    var myWidth = 0, myHeight = 0;
    if( typeof( window.innerWidth ) == 'number' ) {
        //Non-IE
        myWidth = window.innerWidth;
        myHeight = window.innerHeight;
    } else if( document.documentElement && ( document.documentElement.clientWidth || document.documentElement.clientHeight ) ) {
        //IE 6+ in 'standards compliant mode'
        myWidth = document.documentElement.clientWidth;
        myHeight = document.documentElement.clientHeight;
    } else if( document.body && ( document.body.clientWidth || document.body.clientHeight ) ) {
        //IE 4 compatible
        myWidth = document.body.clientWidth;
        myHeight = document.body.clientHeight;
    }
    window.alert( 'Width = ' + myWidth );
    window.alert( 'Height = ' + myHeight );
}
