The only reason I want to determine the screen resolution is so that 
when returning lists I can adjust my paging to fill pages more 
effectively.  I know that this assumes the browser is maximized but for 
the people that will be using this app, this is acceptable.  Thanks for 
the response, I should have realized it myself.  At least now I can go 
on just using the javascript implementation.  Thanks.
