I would like to get the xy coordinate of the current screen relative to the whole page.....how can i do that?
Actually I need this because I want to do a floating frame which will follow the screen as you scroll.  So what I am gonna do is get teh xy coordinate of the current screen.....and then set the iframe to the position.  Are there any other way that I don't need to get the xy coordinate of the current screen? Just like I can set the position relative to the current screen?
Plz help....thx

Check this


<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
     function getXY(){
          if (window.pageXOffset > -1) {
             x = window.pageXOffset;
             y = window.pageYOffset;
         } else if (document.body) {
             x = window.document.body.scrollLeft;
             y = window.document.body.scrollTop;
         }
         alert("x :" + x)
         alert("y :" + y)
     }
//-->
</script>  

</head>
<body leftmargin=5 topmargin=0>
<form>
