I was visiting a site and it had a small pop-up window that said welcome and then it went away after a few seconds. I tried looking at the page source but could not find out how he did that as I would like to put that on my site to notify everone when I am on vacation. How can this be done?
With example code please, thanks.

Put this at your home page:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
newWindow = window.open('','nW','width=300,height=100,scrollbars=0');
newWindow.location.href = 'welcome.htm';
// -->
</SCRIPT>

Then you'll have to create the pop-up document, welcome.htm:
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Welcome!</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="FFFFFF" ONLOAD="setTimeout('self.close()', 3000);">
<H1 ALIGN="CENTER">Welcome!</H1>
</BODY>
</HTML>

At the BODY-row, we tell the browser to close the window after 3 seconds (= 3000 ms).
