Well I gave it a go at the jQuery plugin deal, and well.. I dont think version 0.1 turned out too darn bad. jQuery Impromptu as I'm calling it is a nice little plugin to simulate a nice css/js alert or prompt You may also add forms custom forms and elements to your prompts as well. A few of the options allows you to narrow the allert down to an html element on the page(given it is relative or absolutely positioned) and create as many buttons on your prompt as you wish! A callback function lets you process your forms. Please give it a shot on my examples page and please let me know if you have suggestions or constructive criticism or any other comments.
