Re: good use of java pop ups

I used pop-ups to provide a mini-FAQ on http://www.faccents.com - see
the gallery page (or any item page) for the implementation. I decided
to use pop-ups (instead of a separate FAQ page) to keep people from
being diverted from the site's inventory pages, which are the focus of
the site.

More generally, I believe pop-ups are good for making the equivalent
of short theatrical asides or parenthetical notes available to
those viewers who bother to click, without taking them away from
what they were looking at.

Craig
