Cascading Pages Presentation-How?
need some advice

I have a web application I'm working on where I want to show a set of web pages (from links) .. 5 at a time .. as a cascade of partially open browser windows .. not browser tabs. Right now, the web page links show in a standard text list from a .cgi template. It would be on a Linux server.

I'm 'just so-so' with HTML/CSS .. and 'no-so' as a coder.

I'm really having difficulty understanding "what needs to happen".

The effect I want would look like a series of 5 windows with just the frame, resize, close, minimize .. say, 500 px wide X 400 px high . They would array in an overlapping cascade from left to right, bottom to top (if possible).

I prefer to use .cgi or PHP, but would go for JavaScript as an alternative if a "default to text links" would be automatic if the browser had javascript turned off.

I have a possible option of using ".. xml frontend and create pages using xslt." This is from the application developer who sees my task as being outside his sphere of interest.

My problem, besides not having a clue how to do this, is not really knowing what I need to tell a coder to do.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

I thought the browsers themselves controlled whether new tabs or windows were opened. I know that add-ins on FF like Tab Mix add options for that specifically.
