JavaHelp and modal dialogs

I am trying to use Help in an application that includes modal dialogs.

If I launch the Help from the modal dialog, it stays in front of the dialog, when I would prefer it to be either in front or behind depending on which has focus.

If I launch the Help from the main window, and keep it open, then open a modal dialog, I can no longer interact with the Help.

Please forgive me for asking about this. I have searched the archives and found that the topic crops up regularly but I have never found a satisfactory answer. Has anyone solved it?

Many thanks,
