    ....
    <script type="text/javascript">

    function setFrm() {
    var fh = document.getElementById('txt');
    fh.style.width = (screen.width - 60);
    fh.style.height = (screen.height - 330);
    }

    </script>
    ....
    <body onload="setFrm();">
    ....
    <iframe id="txt" name="txt" contenteditable="true"></iframe>

    OUTCOME: the above is working across IE7/8 and Firefox3.5.

    <img onclick="var x =
    frames['txt'].document.selection.createRange();x.execCommand('InsertOrderedList');x.select();"
    src="icons/list_ordered.gif" style="valign:bottom;width:25;height:
    20" />

    OUTCOME: the above Ordered List function is not working with IE8 while
    it works with both IE7 and Firefox3.5, specifically, upon click,
    order number goes out of the iframe instead of being inside,
    how come? How can we fixt it?

    (I understand when the Style of Width and Height for the iframe is set
    within the iframe element, this is not an issue but I'd like to set
    the iframe's width and height dynanically).

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to add "px" to it.

    fh.style.width = (screen.width - 60)+"px";
    fh.style.height = (screen.height - 330)+"px";

    Great catch. I just did, still to no avail (same problem). What else
    could we try? Thanks.
