This is based on prototype. Its not free, but its not outrageously 
expensive either. We use it for modal dialogs throughout our system and 
we are pretty happy with it. It has enough flexibility to allow us to do 
all sorts of things like display different pieces of inline content and 
content based on Ajax requests.
