For months, I've been searching for a way to make a customized AJAX window, functioning so that when you click a link, an informational window pops up and the rest of the page is greyed out (please see here for example; click "view slideshow" http://www.valley-ae.com/page.aspx?id=1275&pid=1272 ). Has anyone attempted this before?
That effect is accomplished using CSS. In this case the file is called facebox, though there are other versions of similar functional stuff such as Lightbox and other derivative-box names. It is not a popup as much as it is a page loaded atop another page.
