Account Manager: Please make our page 290 wide by 435 high so that the client can load it in their iframe.
Yours Truly: That's going to be a problem. 290 pixels wide is very small and our content is about 650 pixels wide (something I can't touch) and every page height is different depending on what is on it.
Account Manager: OK - then forget the height and just adjust the width.
Yours Truly: OK, I put our content into a container set at 100% so it should conform to whatever size their iframe is set at, down to about 650 pixels..
Account Manager (about an hour later): Is this larger than our usual page? Please make this page smaller.
Yours Truly: The width is set at 100%. If you resize your browser window you'll see the content will adjust to fit it, but only down to about 650 pixels.
Account Manager (about an hour later): The client says they don't want horizontal scroll bars showing, can you make this page the same width as someotherpage.htm?
Yours Truly: But.....but...someotherpage.htm is 760 pixels wide! So...they want to get rid of the horizontal scroll in their iframe, but they want me to make it bigger?
