I'm sure you have a good reason to do that - it's generally kinda tacky.

Use the onLoad method to get it to show up immediately:
http://www.java-scripts.net/javascri...d-Pop-Up.phtml

Use the onUnload method to do the opposite:
http://www.javascript-coder.com/wind...dow-open.phtml

Just a word of advice though - people tend to hate that.

I'm not sure - it depends on what you didn't like about that

Basically, no matter what you do, you'll need to just hook into one of those document methods to call your javascript. I recommend you search the internet for 'pop up' 'javascript' and 'grey out' or something:
http://www.google.com/search?q=javas...ient=firefox-a

There are 128,000 hits. Hopefully one of them will do what you're looking for. If not, you may wish to hire a web programmer.
