Same Window Pop-Ups

Hi. I am developing a web application for Blackberry browser and I am facing a design problem. I need to be able to display some kind of Pop Ups with an extra information in a same window without actually opening a new window in the browser. The reason for it is that I need the user to still be able to see the rest of the website while looking at the information in a pop up,. The other solution what I thought of would be simple browser Alerts but I can't use those because I will have to display a small image in this pop up window, and Alerts do not allow anything besides text it it.

If same window pop-ups are not possible, can you please help me out to find an alternative solution to this problem.

Re: Same Window Pop-Ups

two solutions :

1) create a full Java application instead of a browser app.

2) when you click on the link to display the popup with an image in it, go to another page that looks exactly the same but bears a new DIV element that will contain the popup. the opup will contain an "OK" link that will call the first page (without the DIV elem).
