>>Can anyone tell me how to create a pop up window that will come up automatically when a website is accessed? I've seen several websites that are able to do this for special promotions, etc. but viewing the source provides no insight. I can create pop ups that are activated by clicking on a form button or by clicking on a text link, however, I would like to learn how to cause the pop up window to open automatically without any effort on the viewer's part (or at least not any effort that they are aware of...ie: mouseovers, etc.) Any help or direction with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Good luck, says Darryl -- and I would concur. The only popups that
don't enrage me are on private conferences (where I consider them
