Yes to all the above.
You do not need to use buttons, but can activate the pseudo pop-up windows
You could have a sequence of links as you have listed throughout your text,
and clicking each will display the appropriate text/image in the pseudo
popup. Infact you will not even need to close the last opened, as the next
called will replace the contents and styling of the first.
A few days ago when you were wanting to create a hidden link, you retrieved
a lorem-ipsum.txt file. Here is a link to that same file, and it has the
styles included in it:-
Styles prefixed #xhr relate to the pseudo window frame, and those prefixed
#xml relate to the file contents.
