    silicone extrusion products work well in this situation-I'm not sure what kinds you have (i'm in NZ) but your favourite building supplies or hardware shop will be able to help you.

    If the window is vinyl, there should be no problem. If it is wood, it has to be covered. We put a shower curtain over ours to protect the wood and it was fine.

    So you could put a shower curtain over it but shorten it to look more like a real curtain

    Take the window out and use glass blocks.

    Make sure the sill is angled ever so slightly toward the tub. Latex paint, silicone caulk are both waterproof if you apply a nice solid finish. Windows installed properly are already weatherproof, so you just need to protect the finish and prevent puddling.
