Hello I want to display the browser coordinates in both IE and FF but I only got it work in IE.

In IE I got the coords from e.clientX and e.clientY; however I expect FF to return e.pageX and e.pageY but it isn't. Hence I got 0 for the alerts. Anyone know why? Thanks

pageX and pageY are not defined as part of the DOM Level 2 Standard.

You can not get the position of the cursor when they click the X in browser other than IE. I am not sure if you can do it in IE7.
