Again I would follow the implementation of SUEffect:

1. Create a sibling to SUEffect called SUModalBox.

2. Override #defaultPrototype to return 'Modalbox'.

3. Override #defaultMethod to return 'show'.

4. Create a method #show: that takes an object/block to render the
contents. See the method SUElement>>#render: how to do this.

3. Implement options as you find them in the documentation.

4. Import the JavaScript code into a WAFileLibrary.

5. Commit your changes to SqueakSource so that others can use your
library as well.

Btw, where is the tooltip code available?
