Modal dialog box

How, typically, do you manage, say, what would be a modal-type dialog
box on a non-Rails application? How do you handle that type of thing
in Rails? (I don't want to fo off on some wild tangent in my code, but
want to keep things as rails-like as possible. I'm thinking there must
be a defacto standard for htis type of thing, but I am not finding it)
