How about virtual window managers with a logical screen larger than the physical screen? By my theory the percentages would be applied to the virtual screen resolution. > A page tag would begin with? > <VIEW FULL ESC> This would force the full-screen view with no visible = > boundries.

I assume settop devices would have a key specific to this. Thanks for the thoughts!
