    <script language="JavaScript">
    if (top != self)
    { top.location = location;
    }
    </script>

    This should do it!

    To make a browser window always on top, you have to put this on the <body> tag:

    <body ..... onBlur="self.focus()">

    The only problem with this is code is that you can't go outside this window, because it will regain the focus automatically.

    Thanks guys, but the things you suggested don't work for me, I need to be able to use the other windows and see the ALWAYS-ON-TOP window at the same time, any suggestions!

    I figure you're wanting it to stay on top like ICQ or AIM or something like that. It is impossible to make a window "stay on top" like that in JavaScript. I don't know for sure, but you <I><B>might</B></I> be able to do it with VBScript.

    You can keep a window on top by using the alwaysraised="yes" option of the window.open() method. However, the script must be signed to do so. I have never used a signed script so I can't help you any further than that.

    I did just download some extensibility features for Dreamweaver, one of which includes always-on-top. Once I install and use it, I'll let you know how they did it.

    This solutions seem to work only in IE. Is there a way to make it work also in Mozilla?

    Thanx!
