Paul:

Well... let me restate the situation. I use PG Pro and the smallest window
frame used in that program is for a Mac Classic. The maximum "window size"
that can be used on that screen is 275 in the y direction. I only use 452
in the x direction so that the user can see the hard drive and that portion
of the desk top -- I hate it when a program uses the maximum amount of desk
top.

In any event, in my opinion the most comfortable window size, for that
screen size (i.e., Mac Classic), is 452 x 275 (not meaning a 452 x 275
screen size). However, as I said, the y direction for a maximum window
appears to be limited to 275. Is this not correct?
