I wouldn't even want to store it as a "popup" element. Pop-ups are device
specific; many devices can't do it. Here's a more semantic example inspired
by RFCs. Imagine that internally the IETF stores this:

   <rfc num="1111"/> <!-- or however they choose to reference another RFC
   <rfc num="2222"/>
   <rfc num="3333"/>

Then, they convert it to something like what you showed originally with one
stylesheet for web delivery, a sidebar with background shading for print
delivery with another stylesheet, etc.
