Started work on jQuery UI Modal widget

I’ve started working a jQuery UI Modal widget, for use in a project built on top of the widget library.

We have very high accessibility standards, and the current “{modal:true}” option for the dialog widget unfortunately wasn’t as good as we needed. Seeing that the team had identified the need for a standalone Modal widget, the team thought we could try and get the ball rolling.

You can see the work in progress here in the modal widget in my fork of jquery ui .

I’ve also been having a discssion about the modal widget with Scott Gonzalez of the jQuery UI team.
