Hi

You would use a window disguised as best as possible to an alert. I'm not sure if IE supports it now, but you can have window.open(URL,name,'width=200,height=200,dependent=yes');

Another option would be to make an in-page <div> that looks like an alert and to disable losing focus from it until the X is closed or something.

Regards,
Zyloch
