The Resize Manager in Ample SDK is modeled after Internet Explorer implementation with a bit of goodies added on top. It uses same resizezstart/resize/resizeend events but also makes use of CSS min-/max-|width/height properties to define constraints as well as dynamic :resize pseudo-class applied at the time of resize operation.
