    Had a quick look. I can see this catching on if the development time is much faster then Modal window jquery development.

    I like it, but one thing that does concern me is what happens when users have javascript disabled? When I disabled js all the demos were useless. I’m all for making things look great and easier for users to understand but I’d like to see stuff like this degrade more gracefully.

    If you use it with the concept that javascript is used after the fact to “spice” things up this should be no problem. Quick example:

    {a href=”staticform.php” onclick=”showImpromptuForm();”}example {/a}

    Even if showing javascript fails you will go to the static form. You will encounter this even if you used traditional alert, so no loss there.
