I need to create a help "window" which will be popped up when user clicks the hyper link "What's this". If I do not want to open a new window, instead, just create a DIV that will "float" above the page. How do I do this?

ToolTip does not work here, since there will be some format.

Just like raterus said there are tons of ways to accomplish this
I used this to show/hide a calendar control

here is the client script
<script type="text/javascript">
function ToggleCal(){//Toggle Calendar Visibilty
if(document.getElementById('divCal').style.display=='none')
document.getElementById('divCal').style.display='block'
else
document.getElementById('divCal').style.display='none';
}
</script>
Divcal is the Div the calendar control is located in and it HAS to be positioned with absolute positioning
IE
<div id="divCal" style="position: absolute; right: 380px; top: 330px; display: none;">
</div>
now call the this script using onclick of your control
