I'm using the popup information box II script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/popinfo2.htm) and I want the popup boxes to remain in one location in the center of the page rather than next to the highlighted area. I can't figure out to do that.

Notes: If you change the width of the table, then the width of the container in the style section must be changed to match it. The container's margin-left value must be half its width and be negative. Compatible now only with modern browsers.
