Well, depends on who's guidelines you want to follow. ;) Although I 
find popups generally and moving popups specifically a bit annoying, 
I'd say it's formally OK to do it. If you relie on JS to open a new 
window you may as well relie on it to move the window around. If you 
must do a popup just be sure to provide a possibility for non-JS 
browsers (that includes for example search engine spiders) to access 
the contents of the popup.

As for the sliding-to-the-center effect you're after: As you 
suspected the script on the page you mentioned could be stripped down 
a bit. It's not all that easy, though. I'd give it a try if I wasn't 
to leave just now. ;)
