web window always on top and floatable

I have to develop a web app (in asp) that will display in 1 IE window data about records for which users will have to do some research to either confirm that data, change it or even add to it. Records will be displayed one at a time in that window.
Users will do their research using different tools:  some in other web sites, some in other applications I have no control upon.
I need that my window be always on top of all other windows, whatever the tools used by my users for their research. My window must also be fo float anywhere on the screen, so that my users can see what they want in the other tools at the same time they see my window and make changes in it.
How do I do that?

Try adding focus event to body:

<body onblur="self.focus">

There is noway to guarantee anything method will keep your window on top.  You have no control over what code is on other pages. You migh have situation where conflict with another window results in browser crashing or hanging.  Your requirement is unreasonable if you do not control the code on other windows that might be accessed.

You need  clilent side program written in C++ of Java, this is way beyond normal use for a browser.

I tried this:
<head>
<html>
<head>
<title>test on top</title>
<body onblur="self.focus">
abcdef
</body>
</html>

It doesn't stay on top, even though the other windows are IE windows.
Is there anything wrong?

No there is nothing wrong.  I took a stab at something that mike work part of the time. I guess it doesn't.  As I said nothing is going to give you the full control you want any way and you prbably end up crashing the browser at some point.  You probably need to re-think the design.

Without a executable program that can acces OS controls you are not going to get anywhere with this.  It is not something a browser is capable of.
