Fading background when opening new window. I would like to do a "lightbox" effect that on mouseclick opens a new window over the top of the other windows(s) that has a close button to take the user back to the previous page. I have viewed this in the past, but now cannot find examples. If you have URLS of examples, or better yet, code to make this happen, that would be helpful. Thoughts and opinions on why I shouldn't use this effect are also welcome!
If you need a lightbox effect, use one the freely available "lightbox" or modal window scripts.
Fancy Box is well documented and works with images, text, iframes, Google Maps, media, etc..
