Position Problem

i have a javascript calender that shows when user clicks a button.

Problem: IE the calender doesnt show right underneath the image button -- even though the left position is 225 and top is 115 (dynemic position on this page). I believe this is with repect to position from left and top of the browser window. these 2 are being added to the offsettop and offsetleft but IE and XHTML some how is taking it wrong.

Page Layout: page is 710px wide and displays in the center of the browser window.

Development Environment is Visual Studio 2005 with ASP.NEt 2.0

DTD used is
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >

onclick event the function below is invoked:
function popUpCalendar(ctl, ctl2, format, OtherFunctions)

ctl = image button -- passed is this
ctl2 = text box in which the date is input or read -- passed as document.getElementById("txtDate")

if(( overDiv.offsetLeft + overDiv.offsetWidth ) <= objLeft );
 
elseif(( overDiv.offsetTop + overDiv.offsetHeight ) <= objTop );
 
elseif( overDiv.offsetTop >= ( objTop + objHeight ));

else

}

Error here. You use elseif but you don't do anything ?

this piece of code is in the hide element. I have put the control in side the <form> and the form elements are inside the <table>. If i put the control outside the <table> and click the button to show calender, it opens at the right place.

FF is still opening it at the right place, only IE has a problem with repect to left and top.

The page layout is 710px wide and shows in the center of the page. IE gets the position of the calender button left and top with respect to browser window and displays the calender on the page according to this left and top but now it is with repect to the body/html.

Here is the function that is in question

function popUpCalendar(ctl,      ctl2, format, OtherFunctions) {

            var      leftpos=0
            var      toppos=0
            oFunctions = OtherFunctions
            //alert(ctl2);
            if (bPageLoaded)
            {
                  if ( crossobj.visibility ==      "hidden" ) {
                        ctlToPlaceValue      = ctl2
                        dateFormat=format;

                        formatChar = " "
                        aFormat      = dateFormat.split(formatChar)
                        if (aFormat.length<3)
                        {
                              formatChar = "/"
                              aFormat      = dateFormat.split(formatChar)
                              if (aFormat.length<3)
                              {
                                    formatChar = "."
                                    aFormat      = dateFormat.split(formatChar)
                                    if (aFormat.length<3)
                                    {
                                          formatChar = "-"
                                          aFormat      = dateFormat.split(formatChar)
                                          if (aFormat.length<3)
                                          {
                                                // invalid date      format
                                                formatChar=""
                                          }
                                    }
                              }
