[thelist] Timing Out A Pop Up Window

I've got a client site that will require pop up windows to display 
fabrics selected from a selection of thumbnails. I have a handy 
javascript that automatically closes pop up windows upon selection of 
another page or thumbnail. My concern is for those without java 
enabled browsers or with java disabled. This script does not work at 
all without java.

I'd like to recognize if java is present and if not serve a different 
pop up that will close after 15 seconds so when another fabric 
selection is made if won't get trapped behind the parent window. I 
guess this is two questions so I'll tip out.

1. how to recognize if java is present and serve the alternate window.

2. how to automatically close the window after a pre determined amount of time.

as contractors need to know about preparing our taxes. Also go to 
your local office supply and pick up a mileage book. I was surprised 
how wrong I had been in calculating my mileage. It made a difference 
of nearly $500 dollars in deductions this year alone. Besides, I 
bought it for my business, it's deductible. Can't beat that.
