Is there - as far as you know - a lighbox-like jQuery plugin that can display text in a lighbox fashion?

I would need to display information and error messages in a message box which should behave just as a lightbox (i.e. shadowing background).

One which isn't maintained, but which lists others on its home page: http://jquery.com/demo/thickbox/
