    I'm creating a portfolio and I was wondering how I can open up a new window within the page itself. An example is at http://www.microsoft.com/en/us/default.aspx. If you click one of the links on the right that's what I'm talking about. I was wondering how I would do this or where I can learn to do it?

    Actually, that isn't likely AJAX, but rather DHTML, which just means they are using JavaScript. They likely just have a div with all that content that stays hidden until you click one of the links. Then they make it visible and it has some absolute positioning. There isn't much to it really. Just do some searches on changing elements styles with JavaScript. I've done some similar things and it only requires a small amount of JavaScript to do.
