I would like to write a web page which need to popup a popup window to display an html page
when some button is being clicked. However, many browser will block the popup window.

Can I use javascript or some other code to make the browser to unblock the popup window temporary
so that those message inside the window will be able to show up for the user ?

No, but you have some options:

If the popup is created from an onclick event, many popup blockers may allow that as the user requested it.

Far better to do a pop over division (DIV)

Shows the necessary code.  This is a form, but you can make the content whatever you want and it won't be blocked by a popup blocker.
