I want to use this Javascript DHTML Tooltips cross browser library at http://www.walterzorn.com/tooltip/extensions.htm to display a balloon tooltip, and I want to position this tooltip attached to the low side of the window's clientarea.

This library provides the CENTERWINDOW parameter to position the tooltip in the horizontal&vertical center of the window's clientarea and in addition it provides the parameter OFFSETY to deviate from the center the specified number of pixels.

For example this line display the toolbar 200 pixels below the center:

onmouseover="Tip('Some text', CENTERWINDOW, true, OFFSETY, -200)"


The problem is: what *cross browser* function can I put in place of that "-200" to position it attached to the low side of the window's clientarea?


I tried to use the "window.innerHeight" command but this command is only supported in Firefox :(

How can I do?

I use the document.documentElement.clientHeight property for my forms. Standard HTML DOM property that is cross browser supported.
