I have couple links on the page.
All links will go to a javascript function that will

{

   {
      xpos = event.x;
      ypos = event.y;
   }
   else if(document.layers || (!document.all && document.getElementById))
   {
      xpos = event.pageX;
      ypos = event.pageY;
   }
   alert("x=" + xpos +"\ny=" + ypos);
}
</script>
