Default Full screen mode for just the document?

Is there any way to detach the document pane from the rest of the Word
window and size it independently?

My screen is landscape (wider than tall) and most of my document are
portrait. With Word 2003, I was able to detach most of the toolbars
and either let them float or attach them to the sides to free up
vertical real estate.

In XP, the toolbars are replaced by the ribbon, which takes up even
more vertical space. I know that I can minimize the ribbon (Ctrl+F1),
but I don't believe I can detach it.

Being able to detach the Document pane to a separate floating /
sizable window with the absolute minimum of borders would help a lot.
