    CSS popup not closing... hmm... what to do?

    The code below is used to make a css popup (with opacity) that allows a user to scroll through an xml database of user information. Towards the end of the javascript, the html users database tables are generated. The problem that I've been having is that when the javascript generates this popup, it will not allow the user to close it using the close button. Also, the mouse cursor goes back to that of text instead of staying as a pointer like I set it.

    Any corrections would greatly be appreciated.

    Click <a onmouseover='this.style.cursor="pointer" ' onfocus='this.blur(); display();' onclick="document.getElementById('PopUp9').style.display = 'block' " >
    <span style="text-decoration: none; color: #316191;"><b>here</b></span></a> to meet our board of directors.
    <div id='PopUp9' style='display: none; position: absolute; left: 500px; top: 400px; border: solid #316191 2px; padding: 10px; 
    background-color: #7b9ab9; text-align: justify; width: 400px; height: 420px; opacity:0.95;filter:alpha(opacity=95)'>
    <div  id='show' style='position: absolute; border: solid black 1px; padding: 10px; background-color: #316191; text-align: justify; font-size: 12px; width: 379px; height: 399px;'>
