width, height of object

P: n/a
How can I get the width and height of an object?
I try
document.getElementById('tooltip').width
but it returns "undefined" in IE / Mozilla

My object is a DIV with dynamically changed "style.width" from "" to "600"

--------------------
Basically I want a DIV layer with at most 600px width
(if text inside has greater width then 600 else text width)

So, I try this:
my_object.style.width="";
if (my_object.width > 600) then my_object.style.width=600;

But as I say, my_object.width is not working
