I was looking through your sample pages and noted that it is possible to open a modal box from clicking on a table data cell.
However, I can find nothing about that within the application.
The only thing the application refers to is using an anchor tag.
On my project I am building a list of items in a table format that will have several hundred items. Each item will then call up a modal window which calls an external page.
Doing it this way cuts down the overhead and wasted time loading a page which has hundreds of divisions that aren't even displayed.
How exactly is this done properly?

Which example do you refer to? We do not have any examples that work with a table cell.
You can open a modal window if you simply add an ID to the table cell. However I am not sure that this would cover your needs, because it would require adding a different ID to each cell and creating a different modal window for each cell.
I understand that you want to do this in a more automated way, and that you already have external pages that correspond to each cell. In this case, the best would be to use the “page links” method which allows you to create a single modal window and use it to load different content.
If you send me the URL to see your page and tell me exactly what you want to achieve, I will be able to suggest a specific solution for you.
