Yeah, it's just faking it. The little yellow alert region is simply a CSS styled div element. It works on all browsers, and looks quite out-of-place in Opera :D.

hmmm.. seems a nice trick if you want to show some alert to your website user.. no idea how he did that.. must be calling some "windows." function.. :|

Hes just using css to style a div he inserted after his body tag

css is

#info
  {
    width: 100%;
    overflow: hidden;
    position: absolute;
    top:0px;
    z-index:2;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: normal;
  }

  #infobar a, #infobar a:link, #infobar a:visited, #infobar a:active
  {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    width:100%;
    clear: both;
    color: InfoText;
    font-family: tahoma;
    font-size: 11px;
    background: InfoBackground url('http://www.mobilethemes.com/images/icon_warning.gif') no-repeat fixed .3em .3em;
    padding: .45em .3em .45em 2em;
    border-bottom: .16em outset;
    text-decoration: none;
    cursor: default;
  }

  #infobar a:hover
  {
    font-family: tahoma;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: HighlightText;
    background: Highlight url('http://www.mobilethemes.com/images/icon_warning_hover.gif') no-repeat fixed .3em .3em;
  }
td,th {
	font-family: tahoma;
	font-size: 11px;
	color: #838282;
	margin:0px;
	padding:0px;
}

html for the divs is

<body>
	<div id="info"><div id="infobar"><a href="http://forum.mobilethemes.com/register.phtml">You are not logged in. You cannot download or upload any items unless you have an account.

it is a div with 100% width that drops down using a setInterval loop.

it is probably put in place by server side scripts
