1. Unfortunately it is only standard unix, and www runs also on vms, vm, pc,...
However, if you contribut the code to return the width and height of
the terminal for unix, I'll put it in to a unix-specific section
and many will be grateful.

2. Try
alias www /usr/local/bin/www -p60

3. I guess a shell script could do that too -- that's what we do on VM/CMS
