Is it possible to dynamically choose between a banner and skyscraper depending on the user's screen size? You'd need to modify the Javascript a bit, with something like

if WindowWidth() > 1000:
write '<div class="sky">'
<code for skyscraper>
write '</div>
else
write '<div class="banner">'
<code for banner>
write '</div>'
<code to fetch ad>

which may or may not be sufficient change to the JavaScript to violate the ToS.

I don't know enough JavaScript to know if this is even possible, though.

The TOS there says, "no modifications" if I wanted to change something, as their TOS is rather explicit, I would use their customer service email & get permission before risking not getting paid for a TOS violation. ;)

Ah, but...

if (screenwidth > 800) {
document.write "the skyscraper code";
} else {
document.write "the banner code";
}

...won't change any of the code.

Interesting idea - I like it.

:) Actually, my first thought when I read your post -> was sniff the user agent or such, & then write it server side.

The other way, would have been client side doc.write like you are proposing to stay within their TOS but still do what you want. Nice.
