Ok, I can't find anything to fix this. I've tried combinations of lower,
lift, deiconify, iconify, update, overridedirect, ... but nothing I do
can get a new Tk window to appear on top of IDLE.
This is very confusing for new students (and experts). I'll do whatever
is necessary even it requires plugin or whatever. Can I lower IDLE?
Here's some code to help anyone see the problem:
# in IDLE on Windows XP:
tl = Tkinter.Toplevel()
I can't get the tl window to appear on top of IDLE.
