    How could I reload the page upon closing an overlay?

    A very cheap way of doing it...

    Add this to the overlay template:
    <a href="{xen:link 'link/to/page'}" class="button OverlayCloser">{xen:phrase close}</a>

    Thanks. I'd considered that, but I didn't think (?) it would work if I close the overlay if I simply 'escaped' out.

    Yes, that is the gotcha, I think.

    A more advanced way is doing it is with Javascript. There is an event triggered called onBeforeClose. Bind a function to that event and that should cover all eventualities.
