I couldn't get ninja shadowbox or yooeffects to open external/internal pages in a lightbox (although I followed their instructions tightly). So I tried this out, and it worked perfectly. In fact, if you append "tmpl=component" to the href you wish to open in a lightbox (and also use type="text/html" attribute), the page is not the usual plain iframe. Instead, it's just a div with the referenced page's content--therefore the css styling on your parent page cascades into the lightbox div "page"! I couldn't ask for anything more efficient and friendly.
