		<a  href="#" class="close"></a>



the jquery:
	             $('a[name=bigpic]').click(function(e) {
	         		//Cancel the link behavior
	         		//set different z-index for the menu
	         		$("#pictures img").hide();
	         		$("#sitespictures img").hide();

	         		$('#bannersnext img').hide();
	         		$('#bannersprev img').hide();
	         		//Get the A tag
	         		var id = $(this).attr('href');
	         		//Get the screen height and width
	         		var maskHeight = $(document).height();
	         		var maskWidth = $(window).width();
	         		//Set height and width to mask to fill up the whole screen
	         		//$('#bigpic').css({'z-index': 100000000});
	         		//transition effect		
	         		//Get the window height and width
	         		var winH = $(window).height();
	         		var winW = $(window).width();
	         		//Set the popup window to center
