Auto resizing iframe

Hi guys,

I'm trying to implement an auto resizing iframe into a page, but it requires to bits of script.

First bit (which I stuck in

<script language="JavaScript">
function autoResize(id){
var newheight;
var newwidth;

newheight=document.getElementById(id).contentWindow.document .body.scrollHeight;
newwidth=document.getElementById(id).contentWindow.document .body.scrollWidth;

document.getElementById(id).height= (newheight) + "px";
document.getElementById(id).width= (newwidth) + "px";

And the second bit:

<IFRAME SRC="../helpdesk" width="100%" height="200px" id="iframe1" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" onLoad="autoResize('iframe1');"> </iframe>

Now the problem I run into, is the fact the CMS html editor strips out the onLoad="autoResize('iframe1'); bit from the code.

Plus on top of that, its a bit of a messy way to do it anyway as the top java loads on every page.

Any ideas on how I can successfully implement it? Otherwise I'll go back to my other idea of stripping the already loaded html code from the browser and building a page around that (resulting in my navigation not updating)
