Is there any way to display native esri.dijit.InfoWindow outside the map?

I need to show an infoWindow outside the map (i.e. have it owned by the body of the HTML document, not the map div). If i subclass InfoWindowBase I can do this myself but I really don't want to do that. Is there any way of doing this?

I have tried the following without success:-

     var infoWindow = new esri.dijit.InfoWindow({
      domNode: dojo.create("div", null, dojo.body())
map.InfoWindow = infoWindow;
and map.infoWindow.place("", dojo.body());

Perhaps there's something I need to initialize when I create it explicitly?
