Okay, I'm not sure if what im asking can be done, atleast not the way im envisioning it. I want small "windows" to appear within a website's page. I would like for it to stay within the browser. Being able to move it around is NOT a requirement. Basically im looking for a place to show an HTML table that is (or simply appears to be) drawn as an overlay. ie. it's drawn on top of anything behind it, like textboxes, buttos, images...etc. scripted pop-up boxes dont work here. and i dont think having a separete window would do either. i think im just looking for some kind of drawing trick/technique.

There are some javascript toolkits that create mini-windows much like you describe. They look just like real "windows" with a title bar and close [X] button. You can move them and resize them and fill them with anything you want. That might be overkill for what you want, but it would be cool and it would already be created, bug-tested, and ready to roll.
