of its x, y coordinates?

No problem.
There is a program which will also do it, but the site was down.

If x=0 and y=0 then your position is the top left corner of the screen.
Y is rows, X is columns.

Depends on application, web broswer example.
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.ht...ed-positioning
which uses top/left.

This example is markedup with x,y shown
