I would like to have a window open at the cursor position. The following will work but does not place the window on the point I click. Also this will not work if the function is called from a hyperlink tag(javascript:"cursortest()")

Why are you using moveTo? There is top/left

Also your code is not cross browser friendly. window.event is IE only.

I agree. Here's the link:
