new window always on top

I'm creating an e-learning app and there's an outline that's opened in a
separate window. When you click an item in the outline the relevant
section opens in the app. Is there a way to keep the 'outline' higher
than the app? So that it doesn't ever go behind the app.

Why not instead create a sidebar navigation div, say, on the left? You
do not necessarly need to create a secondary window. I'd stay away from
a modal separate window to list linked, clickable sections.

A good example of what you may be looking (in terms of functionality,
purpose) for is:

Here is an Internet Explorer-specific example. Maybe it can give you
some ideas?

Too bad it fails in Internet Explorer 6. I have no clue whether or not
Internet Explorer 7 supports "position: fixed;" in CSS yet.
