Using the subimage one.

showPopWin('your_url_here.html', width, height, callback_function);

How do I replace the 'your_url...." with actual text?
Thanks

with "showPopWin('your_url_here.html', width, height, callback_function);" ... may be you can pass only the URL .. to pass the dynamic text ... may be you can try the first one.,

if the include page is dynamic.. try like this,

showPopWin('your_url_here.php?str=dynamic text', width, height, callback_function);

then process it in "your_url_here.php" ..
