I'm kinda confused about what you're asking...you want a popup but you also acknowledge that most people have popup blockers.

If you just want a new window to open on a link then use the target attribute either through html or javascript.

I haven't come across a pop-up blocker so far that stops you opening a link in a new window.

when a user click on the page (anywhere)

For starters, you could try

<body onClick="newWin();">

Where newWin() is a Javascript function that opens a new window. I don't know if this qualifies as "anywhere" so you might have to apply the same to your links. Add a generic unobtrusive function that applies to both body and all links.

Not a great idea for your end users, but if you must, you must.

Are you looking for a pop-up that will work even if Pop-Up blocking is enabled?

If so you are looking for what is often called a DHTML popup.
It uses javascript to manipulate the DOM to produce a pop-up effect that can't be blocked.

I this what you're looking for?
