First these FS Commands are mean only for projectors not HTML.

If you design for total Full Screen your Movie dimentions should be set
for a 1.33 (4:3) aspect ratio. If your height is 480 then the width
should be 640.
If you allow scale (projector or HTML) and don't use Bitmaps then it
doesn't matter if you design at 640x480 or 1280x960 they will display
the same except the latter will have more zoom in detail capability.

In HTML unless you open a new window then you can not control the exact
aspect ratio of open window so you should estimate the aspect rattio of
your audience and try and make your presentation look nice in other
aspect ratios as well.
Resize your browser window and stretch it horizonally and vertically to
see about how it will look.
