How do you capture the TRUE position of the mouse in an html document with javascript? I tried using event.y for the Y coordinate, but the value doesn't increase when you scroll down the page. Thanks.

you need to add document.scrollOffsetX document.scrollOffsetY to  mouse co-ordinates to
get it's position from top-left of the page.
