hi ratking (love that name)

what's it (not) doing?  not closing the popup?

you need to give the popup, the child window, a name --

   kirby=window.open('whoswho.htm', 'names', config=...)

and then to close it, you don't even need a function, just say


> 1. When the pop up appears it says Untitled at the top, but you

the title that's on the title bar of the popup will come from the TITLE tag
of the page that is opened in that window, in your case whoswho.htm  -- the
name you code as the second parameter in the open() is something else

overlib is really slick, but might be overkill for your purposes
