    Is there a way to set a minimus size of an html page? The idea is to have
    scrollbars appear when resizing browser window to a size smaller than the
    minimum defined. Also, under this same situation prevent objects like
    tables from being further resized.

    Thanks in advance

    Pondering the eternal question of "Hobnobs or Rich Tea?", RG finally

    In browsers that support it, you can use the "min-width" CSS property -
    although Internet Explorer <=6 doesn't support this. In that situation,
    you can use other CSS hacks to overcome IE's inadequacies, or you can
    use Javascript to add an emulation of min-width support.

    Minmax.js is one such Javascript hack for this
    (http://doxdesk.com/software/js/minmax.html) and seems to (IME) work
    pretty well in IE, although you shouldn't rely on it.
