No. Not at all.
Try to AVOID using window.open! Some aggressive popup blockers can and will block those.
Instead, you use what I call a "popon", which is just a <div> that is positioned on top of all other content. Some call it a "modal dialog" but I avoid that term because MSIE (only) has it's own modal dialog control, and you don't want to use that.
