Default Balloon pop-ups

How to create pop-ups like in google reader. When I click the link a
balloon pop-up opens. I can close it by clicking the "X" button.
Please find the link below for a visual clue.

Not hard. You just create a <DIV> with absolute position and display:none

Then use JS code to place it where you want and change display to block.

I use the technique with my "POPON Calendar" that you can see here:

I also use basically the same technique here:

When you click on one of the artist's names (toward the bottom, e.g., "Dennis Bishop") it pops on a similar DIV.

Even the little guy at the top of the page (just stay at the top for 20 seconds or so) is done using basically the same technique.
