Hi

I would like to have a webpage in which I can click a button and a 'sub window' can appear in the middle of the page on top of the original page. This sub window is like a modal popup (it has the focus and the page behind doesnt get the focus until you close it). The sub window contains another webpage and you can interact with it as you would a normal window.

How would i do this? I would like the simplest possible way

thanks
andrea

This window would be a pop-up.
The contents of the pop-up is a web page.
The position of the pop-up can be centered using the availablescreenwidth and height.
Most of your users would never see this new window due to pop-up blockers.

Have you considered using a hidden div in the centre of the page that becomes visible when the button is clicked.
This div will float above your page content. Put an image or link in the div which reverts it's visibility to hidden when clicked.
