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
