Modal windows using subModal

Modal windows, modeless windows, and popup windows all have a number of caveats that are somewhat annoying. Some time ago, I discovered subModal, which using an iframe, a div, and a nice mixture of CSS to create a great modal window overlay that is a joy to work with.

One of the biggest limitations with modal windows is that you can not interact with the 'opener', subModal allows you to do that. On the other hand, one of the biggest limitations of normal popup windows is that they tend to get lost, which won't happen using subModal.

I highly recommend that you check it out.

If you run into any problems with it, let me know as I've made a few tweaks to make it a bit more browser friendly.
