It does work, I've tried it.  Not specific to the 
browser of course, can send any key to any 
screen, but in this case you send F6 when the 
browser is the front window to make it full screen.

Anyone got any tips on changing X windows (i.e. 
removing window manager) so just the browser 
starts up with no other Apps?  It would make the 
above work so much better as a kiosk. (nokia 770)
