example, it works on ie6,ff3, safari. But not on opera
main.html
 
<script type="text/javascript">
function openModal(){
var returnVal = window.showModalDialog('showModalDialog.html');
alert("returnVal : " + returnVal);
window.location.href=returnVal;
}
</script>
<a href="#" onclick="openModal();">openModal()</a>
 
======================================================================================
 
showModalDialog.html
 
<html>
<head>
<title>Modal Dialog</title>
</head>
      <body >
            <a href="http://www.google.com"  onmousedown="window.returnValue = this.href;window.close();;">Click here</a>
      </body>
</html>

I did get some clarity from article: http://javascript.about.com/library/blmodal.htm
Simply stated javascript can only do this in two browsers, internet explorer or firefox.

function modalWin() {
if (window.showModalDialog) {
window.showModalDialog("xpopupex.htm","name",
"dialogWidth:255px;dialogHeight:250px");
} else {
window.open('xpopupex.htm','name',
'height=255,width=250,toolbar=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no ,modal=yes');
}
}

thank you. now if someone knows how to make windows modal also in opera, safari, etc. then please share.
