1. Use some prebuilt modal+popup window classes. Search the Mootools Forge (
http://mootools.net/forge/) or consider Clientcide's stickywin (
2. Consider using twitter's bootstrap, which has some convenient out of the
box functionality with popups. You'll need Aaron's MT bootstrap to make it
work with MT (http://anutron.github.com/mootools-bootstrap/)
3. Just create a div on the fly with a textarea in it. When the link is
clicked, populate the appropriate data into the textarea so the user can
copy it. Reveal the div and allow the user to hide it.
Obviously #3 would be more work on your side - so I recommend finding a
tool that someone else has already created (e.g., in the Forge) to make
your life just a little easier.
Hopefully that helps,
