I believe that the default ability of resizing palettes on the Mac in
5.2 was a bug.  If a palette was created functionally in 5.2 on the
Mac, it didn't appear with a palette window frame--rather it had a
normal window frame .  If you saved and then repoened it then it would
(Ibeleive) have a palette window frame.  I had to do a workaround with
Export to avoid this bug in .  It
is now (thankfully) fixed in V6.

However, if you want it to be part of a palette you can simple execute

SetOptions[nb, WindowFrameElements -> {"ResizeArea"}]

where nb is the notebook object for the palette (if it is open).

or if the palette is not editable you can execute

SetOptions[nb, Editable->True,WindowFrameElements -> {"ResizeArea"}];
SetOptions[nb, Editable->False]

And if you aremaking the palette from scratch you can just add the
WindowFrameElements -> {"ResizeArea"} optoin to it.  If you want onter
WindowFrameElements  included you can include them in the list on the
right hand side of the option.
