[whatwg] Modal Dialog Box support

I assume Opera and Mozilla will remove modality from alert () from
the next major releases?

People probably just can't wait to put their hands on a browser that will
finally free them from the Windows-style programming tyranny :-)

OEM vendors such as Opera should IMHO be a little bit cautious about
neglecting the [perceived] needs of the [somewhat uneducated] mainstream.
Fools may turn out as pretty good buyers!

thanx,

You could always go to a library. I believe the reference was offered as
something useful, should you be inclined to take the time.
