Script: Amazing Frameless Popup Window - Version I
Functions: In IE4 and later, this script launches a popup
window without the Windows frame or titlebar
(that is, a "containerless" window). In other
browsers, it launches a standard popup window.
Position, width, and height are settable.
Automatic closing of the window on leaving the
page may also be optionally set.
Browsers: IE4 and later

Triggering the popup window
Call the openFrameless function from a link, like this:
Conditioning the page that goes in the popup window
Add the following call to the tag of the page that
will open in the popup *if* your popup does not come to the
front after it loads. This is occasionally needed in early

Making the Frameless Popup Center on the Screen Automatically
We've had numerous requests for this, and a minor modification
of the script can do it. Here's how...
Comment out the two lines as shown, and add the two shown below
// set the screen position where the popup should appear
//var windowX = 260 // from left
//var windowY = 100 // from top
var windowX = (screen.width/2)-(windowW/2);
var windowY = (screen.height/2)-(windowH/2);
