I need to make a my webpage(IE) stay always on top of all other windows(Non IE windows).  I want them to be able to look at the webpage and work on other non internaet apps at the same time.  IS there a way to do that?

i would say you have to write your own web browser that impemented that functionality. New .Net stuff makes that do-able.

the easyest way is to use activeX
You can create very simple container, put internet explorer inside
and set "always on top" to it.
once you page will be loaded activeX component will be executed and it will display any you want.

Probably even easier to do it in .NET, I think... at least with a windows application, I don't think you could do that with a webpage...

The only way to do it is to write a custom application. Be it a activeX container or .Net browser window. I would say that .Net would be the easiest way to go. Below is a link that has step by step directions AND the source code. All you have to do is set the transparency (form.opacity) and the always on top setting that you wanted.
